MEMBERSHIP AND ORGANIZATION

At the end of 2004, membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints1 stood at 12,350,000 in 160 countries of North and South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Pacific Rim (Watson, 2005).

1 The complete name of this religious institution, by official policy, is “The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-Day Saints,” called “the Church” (for convenience and brevity), in subse-
quent references within the same work. Members are often called “Mormons” or “Latter-
day Saints;” labels readily understood and not offensive. However, the institutional policy
regarding the title of the Church discourages the unofficial and incorrect titles, “The
Mormon Church” or “The LDS Church.”

This chapter is intended to be an accurate description of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints and its doctrines. However, it is neither an official statement of the Church
nor of Brigham Young University, which is operated by the Church. Extensive official in-
formation about the Church is available at www.lds.org, where Gospel Principles, a detailed
description of Church doctrine, is available for review and my be downloaded at no charge
