Our Mission Statement

The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been called into renewal to preach the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ to all who will listen, and to prepare and gather a righteous people for the building of the Kingdom of God on earth, Zion.

Our Beliefs

Heralding from the 1830 Restoration church, the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the continuation of Christ's New Testament Church. We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God. He came to earth, lived as an example for us, and died for our sins. We believe in the restoration of His gospel which brought us the Book of Mormon and latter day revelation. We have been called to prepare the Kingdom of God, Zion, on earth which is spoken about in the Lord's Prayer, for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Our Church is headquartered in Independence, Missouri with branches throughout the United States and several foreign missions. We strive to be advocates for our brothers and sisters, as Christ was for us, and to extend grace freely.  Our roots are in heaven – from authoritative priesthood, to covenant baptism and prophetic guidance – and we endeavor that all we do may bring Glory to our Heavenly Father.

Core Values

Our services are open for all who wish to attend. Worship is simple and traditional. Sunday school classes are provided, according to circumstances, for all ages. Social and cultural activities are encouraged. All are invited to attend our services and appreciate the love and closeness of the church. Local branches conduct Sunday School and Worship Services Sunday morning. You are welcome to contact local pastors concerning present services and activities.

Now is the time for all to prepare to meet God. Christ has proclaimed the only way of salvation. We have the power of choice and it is our duty to believe in Christ, obey his Gospel and become members of his church and kingdom through baptism then:

  • Continue to grow in personal and corporate righteousness through worship, prayer, church attendance, ordinances, study, and right living. (Comment: corporate righteousness involves the church)
  • Help to develop righteousness through living a godly family life, providing service to others, caring for the sick and poor, working for justice and seeking peace with all persons, and; laboring for the Kingdom of God.

We believe Christ’s gospel is for everyone. We also believe in one united organization, one program, and one faith. Division  is  contrary to Christ’s teaching of brotherhood and the united fellowship of his true followers.

We seek loving fellowship among our members, demonstrating the principles of Christ’s gospel and seeking the Kingdom of God on earth; considering each other as brothers and sisters and followers of Jesus Christ.
