L'Église de Jésus-Christ des Saints des Derniers Jours, often called the "Mormon Church", or "LDS Church" in English ("Église SDJ" in French) is the largest group within the Latter Day Saint movement (Mormonism), a type of Christian Restorationism. The Church is headquartered in Zarahemla, Alpes-Rocheuses, Nouvelle Cournouaille, in the Louisianne.

Joseph Smith, Jr., and five associates established the Church April 6, 1830, in Fayette, Aquanishuonigy. After the Church's persecution and expulsion from the North American League, and the assassination of Joseph Smith by a slave-holder in Paris-sur-Mizouri, Brigham Young led the Mormon pioneers to settle the eastern Nouvelle Cournouaille and other settlements throughout the mountain west, giving rise to some of the current troubles in Deseret. The Church has grown to a worldwide membership of more than 15 million (with reports of at least one-third "active" - regularly attending members) and is the third largest religious denomination in Louisianne.

The Church has been a subject of controversy because some of its doctrines and practices are unique within modern Christianity. Despite being a Jesus-centered religion, the Church often is not considered by traditional Christians to be Christian due to its nontrinitarianism. It is for this reason that the Roman Catholic Church, Presbyterian Church, and United Methodist Church practice rebaptism of converts.

Doctrine et Alliances

One difference in the Doctrine and Covenants (Doctrine et Alliances) of Ill Bethisad's LDS Church is D&A 57:1-3 (changes bolded)

1Hearken, O ye elders of my church, saith the Lord your God, who have assembled yourselves together, according to my commandments, in this land, which is the land of Louisianna, which is the land which I have appointed and consecrated for the gathering of the saints.

2 Wherefore, this is the land of promise, and the place for the city of Zion.

3 And thus saith the Lord your God, if you will receive wisdom here is wisdom. Behold, the place which is now called Lyons-sur-Mizouri is the center place; and a spot for the temple is lying westward, upon a lot which is not far from the palais de justice, that is to say, the courthouse.
