Historically, Mormonism claimed not to be Christian, but a restoration of original Christianity. Although controversial, Mormonism now claims growing repectability as another branch of Christianity--neither Catholic or Protestant. Since the founding of the Church on April 6, 1830, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a unique history and set of doctrines including eternal progression, additional books of scripture, modern revelation, polygamy, as well as many others. The church based in Utah is the largest branch of more than 100 churches of the "restoration" movement founded by the first prophet, Joseph Smith. The study of this movement can be a fascinating endeavor.

The most respected evangelical Christian ministry dealing with Mormonism is Utah Lighthouse Ministry located in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah. It was founded by Jerald and Sandra Tanner, descendants of early founders of Mormonism. The reason why they are respected is their reasoned, scholarly approach to the subject of Mormonism, especially in the study of the original documents of Mormonism. Their avoidance of emotional arguments is refreshing. This link is provided in the interest of balance and is not meant to offend anyone.

The Sacred Name Movement
In recent years, a number of assemblies have formed around the world centered around the sacred Hebrew name of God found in the "Old Testament" scriptures. Many of these assemblies (few call their congregations "churches") span the spectrum between traditional Christianity and orthodox Judaism, and are often neither "fish nor fowl".
