[[Category:Religions]][[category:organizations]]The [[Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints]] is a [[religious]] [[:category:organizations|organization]] founded in New York State (United States) in 1830. Its members are known throughout the world as "Mormons". Its headquarters today is in Salt Lake City, [[Utah]], where the Church has had significant influence since Mormons founded it in 1847 after gathering first in the Western Reserve area of Ohio in the 1830's, in western [[Missouri]] during the same timeframe, and in [[Illinois]] in the 1840's.
''Query: perhaps "mormonism" should be the religion, with a separate page? (the same way the [[Church of Scientology]] is separate from [[scientology]]) Research needed, e.g. see if this is something addressed by Wikipedia.''
* The [[Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints]] is a "breakaway sect" which still practices [[polygyny]].

The Mormons believe that the canon can occasionally be added to, hence the term "open scriptural canon". Most branches of Christianity do not accept this practice, believing that canon must remain fixed.
