The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is often referred to as the Mormon Church, although there are other denominations within Mormonism. The LDS is by far the larger denomination originating from the Mormon movement founded by Joseph Smith Jr. in 1830. LDS theology includes the Christian doctrine of salvation through Christ alone, but has an open canon which includes four scriptural texts: the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.
