The Austin Texas Temple was among those announced by President Russell M. Nelson during the April 2022 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Other temples in Texas are the Dallas Texas Temple, Houston Texas Temple, Lubbock Texas Temple, San Antonio Texas Temple, and McAllen Texas Temple (under construction). The construction of a temple in Fort Worth was announced in October 2021.

Missionary work began in Texas in 1843. In 1898, land was purchased that eventually became the East Texas colony of Kelsey, composed of 300 Church members.

There are more than 370,000 Latter-day Saints in Texas. Austin is the state capital. [1]
