Winn The Mormon Church’s sojourn in northwestern Missouri in the 1830s is an interesting story but not a happy one. It reflects poorly at one point or another on virtually all of the actors involved. Yet despite its troubles in Missouri, Mormonism has since become America’s most successful indigenous religion.

Its smaller sibling, the Community of Christ, which has its headquarters in Independence, Missouri, claims an additional quarter of a million.

Much attention has focused on Smith’s first attempt called “Zion’s Camp” to redeem properties he had prophetically designated as “promised lands” his followers were divinely entitled to inherit in Jackson County, Missouri. In 1834, Smith’s prophecy was refuted, however, when the armed company he commanded was unable to fulfill their mission to restore to the Mormons their confiscated properties.
