Administrative History

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1830-) is a restorationist Christian church founded by Joseph Smith in New York. It is commonly abbreviated as the LDS Church and colloquially referred to as the Mormon Church.

During the 1820s, the church's founder, Joseph Smith, experienced visions and was led to the golden plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated. The Church was officially founded by Joseph Smith on April 6, 1830, in Palmyra, New York. The members of the religion faced a series of persecutions, and eventually fled to Utah for refuge beginning in 1847.

The Church continued to grow and expand beyond Utah, and today it has a membership numbering over 15 million. It is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Thomas S. Monson serving as its prophet and president.
