The Cumorah Project is a privately funded initiative that engages in research and education. All resources developed are made available online at no cost. Our major areas of emphasis include:
An online atlas providing the location and organizational structure of LDS congregations, missions, stakes, and districts worldwide. The atlas also contains country and state maps of the most populous unreached cities and the status of LDS outreach by ethnolinguistic group. Access the atlas on the left-hand column under "LDS International Atlas - Google Maps." The atlas is strictly for educational purposes. For information regarding LDS meetinghouse locations and times, visit lds.org/maps. Below are links to world regions of the atlas.
“As we previously remarked, all well established and properly organized governments have certain fixed and prominent laws for the regulation and management of the same. If man has grown to wisdom and is capable of discerning the propriety of laws to govern nations, what less can be expected from the Ruler and Upholder of the universe? Can we suppose that He has a kingdom without laws? Or do we believe that it is composed of an innumerable company of beings who are entirely beyond all law? Consequently have need of nothing to govern or regulate them? Would not such ideas to be a reproach to our Great Parent, and at variance with His glorious intelligence? Would it not be asserting that man had found out a secret beyond Deity? That he had learned that it was good to have laws, while God after existing from eternity and having power to create man, had not found out that it was proper to have laws for His government? We admit that God is the great source and fountain from whence proceeds all good; that He is perfect intelligence, and that His wisdom is alone sufficient to govern and regulate the mighty creations and worlds which shine and blaze with such magnificence and splendor over our heads, as though touched with His finger and moved by His Almighty word. And if so, it is done and regulated by law; for without law all must certainly fall into chaos. . . . God is the source of all good; consequently, then, he was the first Author of law, or the principle of it, to mankind.”Joseph Smith Jr. History of the Church, 2:7, 8, 12, 13
“Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it.”Marcus Aurelius Meditations
“This thing which we call testimony is the great strength of the Church. It is the wellspring of faith and activity. It is difficult to quantify. It is an elusive and mysterious thing, and yet it is as real and powerful as any force on the earth...Personal testimony is the factor which turns people around in their living as they come into this Church. This is the element which motivates the membership to forsake all in the service of the Lord. This is the quiet, encouraging voice which sustains without pause those who walk in faith down to the last days of their lives.”Gordon B. Hinckley
