Who are we?

As Christians, we try not to focus on ourselves, our accomplishments, or our works.  We strive to glorify our Father in Heaven and give praise to our Savior Jesus Christ - following Him in all things.  

Above all, that's what we are about.  

We are not a formal organization, church, or company, of any kind.  We are a network of people - some former LDS people, some not.  Most of us are in or around the Salt Lake valley.  Any Christian willing to volunteer their time to help others transition from Mormonism to Christianity can serve with us according to their desire and ability to serve.

If you choose to reach out to us, we will find someone - based on your situation and preferences - that you can talk to.  And as your needs or desires change, you might be in contact with more than one person.  Someone might fill the role of friend and confidant, and another might be a teacher, spending time with you to delve deep into the truths taught in the Bible.  We will also assist you with resources such as books, sermons, and web sites that might help answer questions and provide opportunities for learning.

So yes, we have faces, names, addresses, families, churches, and jobs.  And you can get to know what they are, but until you are ready to Take The Next Step, just know that we are here for you.

Above all, we are here to lift up the name of Him who saved us.  Our Lord, our Savior, our Priest, and our King - Jesus.

 

Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

Romans 8:34


We think it is important also to know who we are not

 

WE ARE NOT ABOUT BEING "ANTI-MORMON"

Our purpose here is not to focus primarily on the specific reasons why many of us left the LDS church.  There are many web sites dedicated to pointing out those issues, and there is an exhaustive list of other resources to address them if people are interested.  

We are not here to try and seek out true believers of the LDS faith and prove them wrong.  We are not interested in participating in a religious debate for the sake of winning or being right.  We are happy to share the reasons why we do not believe that Mormonism it true, but will do so in a loving and constructive way.  

Some of us have wives, children, or parents that are still LDS, and while we confidently assert our belief that Mormonism is a false religion, and that truth and salvation is found only through Jesus and in traditional Biblical Christianity, we are not "Anti-Mormon" any more than we are against our own family members and other loved ones.

 

WE ARE NOT ABOUT A SPECIFIC CHURCH OR DENOMINATION

Christ and the Apostles referred to His Church as a body of believers - an "invisible church".  He does not distinguish between local churches or denominations.  

All true Christians share a core set of beliefs as taught in the Holy Bible.  Although there can be discussions and even some healthy debate on some secondary issues, our main focus is on what all true Christians believe.  We do not represent any particular denomination, nor is it our intent to push anyone towards attending any particular church.  

However, we hope that you decide to start attending a local Christian church soon, and we are happy to help you find one.  Our only bias would be towards recommending or introducing you to a church that adheres to the teachings found in the Bible.  I personally visited around 10 churches before I found one that suited me, and that I felt taught God's Word as purely as anyone can.

Now you are the body of Christ
