Latter-day Saint, Mormon

The term preferred by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for one of its members, although Mormon is also acceptable.

The church discourages using the term Mormon Church, preferring the official name, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or its shortened form, Church of Jesus Christ.

Mormon is correctly used in proper names such as the Book of Mormon, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and Mormon Trail.
