We have a heart for
those who are caught up by the LDS movement and we are actively
pursuing to share the truth in love in this area. Our goal is to
equip Christians with the tools and understanding of how to minister
effectively to our LDS brothers and sisters, and to assist those who
are involved, to find related resources.
One of the biggest
challenges in this area is understanding the
terminology. LDS and Christians use the same words, yet they
have very different meanings. Both Christians and LDS will greatly
benefit from understanding this difference.
I was a former member of the LDS church, although not as
active as some, nonetheless, born into an LDS
family and a member for 30+ years. The death of several
people caused me to take a closer look at what I really believed. I turned to the Bible for answers which
ultimately led me to leave Mormonism for Christianity. The
transition was extremely difficult and costly. I call it the
“awkward spot.” Learning who God really is, developing new
relationships outside of Mormonism, and coming to trust people were
only part of the dynamics of my new life in Christ. I became a Christian in 1999 and have
been involved in reaching out to the LDS since that time.
Amazing Grace - Leanne Reimes
Fact: Amazing grace is NOT found in the LDS Hymnal
"This very song, "Amazing Grace" sung by Leanne Reimes was the straw that broke the camel's back for me, I heard it
in an electronics store on a TV that I was passing by. I
stopped and even though I had heard that song many times before, I
understood the words for the first time. Later at an LDS
service I wanted to hear more about Jesus Christ, and He was just
not there, so I decided to be comforted by the words of "Amazing
Grace", I pulled out the hymnal and and could not find it. I
said, "there is no amazing grace here." That was my last time
attending the LDS church as a member. I wanted the real thing.
I left Mormonism for genuine relationship with Jesus Christ." E. R.
