On a side note about baptism in the UMC as it relates to members of the Latter-Day Saints church: in 2000, General Conference passed a resolution calling for UMC pastors to baptize former Mormons who seek to enter membership in our churches, following a period of catechesis. You can find the accompanying study materials here on the GBOD web site:

Hi Matthew -

I found your podcast not too long ago, after visiting a UMC in my city and finding that the services spoke to my soul.

I'm a Mormon - born and raised. To answer your questions about Mormon baptism, Mormons baptize "in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost" (God the Father, Jesus Christ, and, well, the Holy Ghost).

As you correctly mentioned, Mormonism is a non-Trinitarian faith, so Mormons believe that the three individuals above are separate, distinct, and coequal members of the Godhead.

I know I'm about a year and a half late to the party, but I just heard episode 2 the other day.

Keep up the good work!
