Help us open the Utah Christian Research Center in the Salt Lake area!

Mormonism Research Ministry is currently raising funds to open a facility in the Salt Lake valley that will house a Christian bookstore (focusing on books related to Mormonism and also resources with a Christian apologetics theme), an LDS research library (where people can do research), a Bible/Mormon museum, and a classroom for teaching missions teams coming to Salt Lake City. (For more what we hope to do, please click here.) Please help us make this a reality.

For a gift of $300 or more to this building project, you will receive a page out of our 1630 copy of the King James Version, a 400-year-old leaf. It will come with a letter of authenticity along with several photocopies (including the Title Page) and your receipt for your donation to the building project (frame not included)

Listen to 5 Viewpoint on Mormonism podcasts/radio shows that aired during the week of May 1st as Bill and Eric describe their dream and what they hope to accomplish during these next months of fundraising for a building.

10 Questions Answered

  1. What is the purpose of this property? Answer: Click here.
  2. Where will this property be located? Answer: The property has not yet been found. We would like it to be In the southern part of the Salt Lake valley, hopefully within 5-7 minutes of the I-15.
  3. How can I get on the special group email list to keep updated on this project? Answer: Email Eric Johnson ([email protected]) and put “bookstore” in the memo line. You will be updated with the latest information on our progress. We thank you for your prayers.
  4. When will this facility open? Answer: We are currently doing a capital campaign. Once we see how much funding we have, we hope to secure the right place for us to make this place “home.”
  5. Are you accepting donations now? Answer: Yes, we are asking for your donations now so we can know what we have to work with. If you wait until after we find a property, we won’t know how much we have to work with.
  6. What if I live outside Utah? Why should I give to this project? Answer: This facility will be midway between Salt Lake City and Provo, UT (where church-owned Brigham Young University is located). It will be strategically located where the majority of Mormons live in the state of Utah (within an hour’s drive). It is a missionary endeavor as we continue to do our work in the heart of where the LDS religious leaders operate. We believe it will have an impact.
  7. If I donate to this project, is it tax-deductible? Answer: Yes, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. You will receive a receipt for your donation. 100% of all funds go to getting the property.
  8. I understand you have a $100,000 grant that doubles my donation. Is that true? Answer: Yes, anything you give will be doubled dollar for dollar through August 2023.
  9. I also understand that I can get a page of the 1630 edition copy of the King James Bible. How do I get that? Answer: There are three plateaus. For a gift of $300 to $599, we will send you an original page from the Old Testament. For a gift of $600-$999, you can request a page from the Old Testament (no title page). For a gift of $1000, you can request a page from either the Old or New Testament; for increments of additional $1,000, you get additional pages.
