Growth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — as measured by numbers of members, dedicated temples, congregations and stakes — continues 193 years after the faith’s founding.
The 2022 statistical report for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was released April 1, during the Church’s 193rd Annual General Conference. Church membership during 2022 topped 17 million, up from 16.8 million at the end of 2021.
During 2022, the Church’s 3,500th stake was created — a little more than nine years after the 3,000th stake was organized, in Freetown, Sierra Leone, on Dec. 2, 2012. Fourteen years lapsed between creation of the Church’s 2,500th and 3,000th stakes.
