Tim Tebow Mormon ?

Just in case you wonder if Tim Tebow is mormon, the truth is that Tebow, 25, is not mormon.  

In fact, American football quarterback for the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL) Tim Tebow (full name: Timothy Richard "Tim" Tebow) was raised Baptist.

To take things form the start, Tebow's parents met while attending the University of Florida in the late 1960s. Pamela, his mother, was a freshman and his father, Robert, was a sophomore at the time. 

The pair tied the knot on June 12, 1971, before Pamela's graduation from the University. In 1985, the family moved to the Philippines where they served as Baptist missionaries and built a ministry. Prior to becoming pregnant with Tim, his mother contracted amoebic dysentery and fell into a coma. She found out she was pregnant while recovering. 

Because of the medications used to treat her, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion however, the Tebows decided against it citing their strong faith and on August 14, 1987, she gave birth to Tim in Manila.

Tim Tebow is the youngest of five children. He and his siblings were all homeschooled by their parents, who worked to instill the family's Christian beliefs

It has to be mentioned that Tim Tebow's father runs the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association.
