Names Of The Church

Names of the Church

This is an examination of Apostasy and the many break away groups. Source material was originally on the bordeglobal.com/foruminv/index.php?showforum=120 site.

QUOTE

                          Many Mormon Churches

    It is not our purpose to look into any of these factions except the
three largest, namely:

          1. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS,
            Mormon, Utah Mormons, Salt Lake City Mormons, Brighamites -
            estimated membership, ca. 10 million, of whom more than
            half are inactive)
          2. The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
            (RLDS, Saints' Church, Missouri Mormons, Independence
            Mormons, Josephites - estimated membership, ca. 250,000);
            and
          3. Fundamentalist (Polygamous) Mormons, who, though forming
            nuclei around different leaders, all claim to be the
            "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" (estimated
            membership, ca. 60,000).

    We shall mostly be referring to these in our discussion, and
occasionally some of the other more interesting factions that provide
interesting snap-shots of different stages of Mormon crystalisation.

    Another little know fact amongst Mormons and non-Mormons is that
the Mormon Church has evolved considerbly in doctrine, practice and
name. This will explain in part why many of the factions have different
sounding names. During the lifetime of the Church established by Joseph
Smith (1830-1844), it changed names at least four times:

          1. Church of Christ;
          2. Church of the Latter-day Saints;
          3. Church of Christ of Latter-day Saints;
          4. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; and
          5. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    This should be remembered in later discussions where the correct
name of Christ's true church is considered important in establishing a
signpost of its claimed divine authority.

    The known Mormon denominations are listed below (many of them
have identical names based on their claims to authority):

Names Of The Church Studies Doctrine Mormon

If you think about it, it kind of makes since. If you consider the early church before the apostasy all were of one mind. Then people decided that they knew better then the Apostles and Prophets so people decided to leave the church and teach their own doctrine. It would be no different nowadays, I knew that the number of the apostate groups were large but I had no idea there was so many.

Church The Names

LDS or Mormon? It depends

Church prefers full name but is accepting more Mormon uses. And most of those headlines have used neither the church's formal name nor the shorter "LDS Church." Rather, they display in big, bold letters the nickname/title "Mormon." Ref. Source 5
