TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

After growing up as a pastor's kid in Salt Lake City, Steven Crane followed God's call to Idaho to start a new church.  It grew from a house church of 7 to 111 in a rented space, to now over 3,000. Steven shares what was at the core of his teaching that led to this growth, and the types of questions he asks Mormons so his conversations with the LDS people are full of grace and clarity. 

SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES

  • Sermon on the Mount, The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew)
  • The Lord is one (Deuteronomy 6:4)
  • There is no other God after me (Isaiah 43:10)
