The Mormon religion, formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is believed to be a restoration of the original Church established by Jesus Christ.  Other common nicknames include the Mormon Church, Mormonism, LDS Church, Latter-day Saints, or simply LDS.

Who are Mormons?

Mormons come from essentially every background, culture, race, demographic and nation in the world.  Despite our differences, we are all united in our belief that God is our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ is the Savior.
