On September 24, Dr. George Braswell, Senior Professor of World Religions, is leading a seminar on Mormonism, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the morning session, he will present Mormon beliefs about marriages for eternity, eternal families, baptism for the dead and genealogies, Jesus and salvation, missions and temple ceremonies.
“Latter-day Saints have experienced phenomenal growth in recent years, now having the second highest growth rate among religions in the United States,” says Dr. Braswell. “Pastors and church leaders need to know how their beliefs are similar and are different from traditional Christian beliefs.”
In the afternoon, he will moderate a panel discussion with Mormon leadership from churches in the Raleigh area. The seminar will be held on the Buies Creek Campus in Butler Chapel. Registration will open at 9:30, with the first session beginning at 10. The second session will run from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

“Learning about Mormonism and other world religions is a must for Christian ministers today,” says Dr. Andy Wakefield, Dean of Campbell University Divinity School. “Even in the most rural areas, we find ourselves living in a global world, surrounded by neighbors from other cultures and religious backgrounds. To share Christ’s love appropriately and effectively, we must understand their world views.”
