Bridges: Helping Mormons Discover God's Grace
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also called the LDS or Mormon church, is one of the fastest growing religions in America. Some people call it a cult; others call it the restored Church. There is no lack of documentation on the differences between Mormonism and historic Christianity, but such material fails to address the human element and the needs and struggles of individual people. The Bridges training program takes an entirely different approach.
Bridges Training Seminar
Bridges: Helping Mormons Discover God's Grace has helped over 60,000 Christians, all over the country and around the world, gain a new appreciation for effective, relational evangelism to Mormons. It combines video interviews with extensive workbook material and classroom instruction. Through colorful commentary, current data, and insightful interviews with people who live day by day with members of the LDS community, this program provides an honest and sensitive look at LDS culture, social structure, religious terminology, and values. Bridges equips biblical Christians to better understand the culture of the Latter-day Saints, to build real connections with them, and to share with gentleness and respect our own heartfelt testimony concerning the Good News of Jesus Christ.
This training program can change your life, but more importantly, it may change the lives of your Mormon friends and neighbors.
Over two and a half hours of video focus on the following topics in 5 separate learning modules:
1. Legacy - The founding and perseverance of the LDS church through its history to its present prosperity.
2. Tapestry of Theology - Understanding the basics of LDS vocabulary, doctrine and teachings.
3. The Journey Out - Former Mormons share their experiences in LDS culture and the ways in which God drew them to experience His grace.
4. Bridging the Gap - The Do’s and Dont’s of successful evangelism. How to make the Good News sound like “good” news to Mormons.
5. Community of Grace - How to surround former Mormons with a loving church community that meets their individual and family needs.
