Church of Christ (Mormonism)

In Mormonism, the Church of Christ is the name of the original Christian church established by Jesus Christ in the first century. It was the first name of the original Latter Day Saint church established in 1830 by Joseph Smith, Jr

The church was referred to by a few other names during Smith's life. The church was also called the "Church of Jesus Christ," the "Church of the Latter Day Saints," and later its full, formalized title was given as "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" to fully reflect the church's identity and distinguish it from Jesus Christ's ancient church. Smaller sects of the movement continue to use variations of the name.
