Evangelicals and Mormons both claim to believe in Jesus and assert that Jesus’ person and work are totally sufficient for the salvation of humanity. And yet, while there is overlap at certain points in our respective views of Jesus’ identity and activity, there are also some very significant differences, including how we define important terms like salvation. In light of Evangelicals and Mormons’ close proximity as neighbors, and given our striking similarities and strong differences on beliefs and practices, how might we relate to one another and where might we work together in our communities?
“Saved By Grace? A Mormon and Evangelical Dialogue, Part 3” will get at these issues, noting that while fences make for good neighbors, so, too, do front porches, sidewalks, and playgrounds. Please join New Wine, New Wineskins of Multnomah University and Biblical Seminary and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for a thoughtful discussion on this subject at River West Church, Lake Oswego, Oregon, from 6:30-8:30 PM, Saturday, October 27th. The church address is 2000 Country Club Road, Lake Oswego, Oregon 97034.
