About the Church

Today The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (casually known as the Mormon Church) has over 13 million members in over 160 nations worldwide. Over 124 of its beautiful temples adorn sites in North, South, and Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and numerous islands of the sea. Its relief and humanitarian efforts have helped bless the lives of millions around the world, regardless of faith, as it follows the example of its Living Head, Jesus Christ. Sadly, the Mormon Church is still greatly misunderstood, and many myths and falsehoods still exist. We hope that this site may prove informational to those who visit with the sole purpose of finding information on either a given topic in Mormonism or simply about Mormons in general. Articles cover topics about such things as basic Mormon beliefs, Mormon doctrine, Mormon history and leadership, temple work, family life, Mormon literature, controversial topics, and Church organizations and humanitarian efforts.

Hinckley, gave the following announcement, “I feel impressed to announce that among all of the temples we are constructing, we plan to rebuild the Nauvoo Temple.” The news was received with joy and tears by members and even those not of the LDS faith.

Humanitarian Aid Updates


A new partnership between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation promises an additional water source for the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital and Research Center, which is located in the capital city of Kinshasa. “We became involved with this project because the hospital seems to be doing all they can to provide quality medical care but still find themselves needing additional resources,” said Matthew Heaps, who oversees clean water projects for the Church. “We help them to help themselves by supplementing the hospital’s existing water source with an additional well for consistent and reliable water.”

The not-for-profit hospital, which opened in 2007, is the vision of Dikembe Mutombo, who retired this week after 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association. The facility currently has 150 beds with a planned capacity of 300. Read more...
