Template:About the Church
Today The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has over 16 million members in over 160 nations worldwide. Currently, 170 of its beautiful temples adorn sites in North, South, and Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and numerous islands of the sea. As of 8 May 2022, there are currently 171 dedicated temples, 50 temples under construction, and 61 temples that have been announced (not yet under construction) for a total of 282 Temples. Of the 282 total temples, 100 have been announced by President Russell M. Nelson during his four years as Church president. The following temples are currently undergoing renovations: Hamilton New Zealand Temple, Salt Lake Temple, St. George Utah Temple, Hong Kong China Temple, and the Columbus Ohio Temple.
The relief and humanitarian efforts of the Church 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 Church of Jesus Christ is still greatly misunderstood, and many myths and falsehoods still exist. We hope that this site will provide information to those who visit hoping to gain knowledge about Latter-day Saints (nicknamed "Mormons"), either on a given topic in Mormonism or simply about Latter-day Saints 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.
