TRAVIS - Is James J. Strang's church still around? I know many joined the community of Christ, The RLDS, but is James J. Strang's church still around? What are the requirements to be able to make sure I can join in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

JOEL - The Strangite church, headquartered in Wisconsin, is still in existance today, although its membership is small in number. They also call themselves the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", but are known by other names and claim they are the "original" true church. They have their own web site at:
They are in no way connected with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
