The Seventh-day Adventist Church has a special mission to preach the good news of salvation to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people (Revelation 14:6). In reaching people from various backgrounds, we are reminded that “lessons must be given in the language of humanity” (The Desire of Ages, p. 34). For this reason, the General Conference Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department has initiated the Reaching & Winning series of courses on world religions.
The Roman Catholic Church is the largest of all Christian denominations. Internally, Catholicism is organized into religious orders, associations of men or women who seek to lead a life of prayer and pious practices and who are often devoted to some specific form of service. This books takes a look a at these and other aspects of Catholic church, including doctrinal beliefs in common with Seventh-day Adventists.
This course is to be taught in four classes. Each class is planned to be between one and a half and two hours in length, including small-group sessions. It may also be studied personally.
Reaching & Winning Catholics includes:
- Who are Roman Catholics
- Exploring Catholic Contemporary Trends
- Surveying Doctrinal Misunderstandings
- Outlining Some Relevant Bible Studies
This material will help Seventh-day Adventists understand Catholic background and doctrines so that they can be reached and taught the truth about Scripture and our Heavenly Father.
