A persons name remains on the LDS roles until formally removed.


The LDS church may claim to be a fast growing church with millions of members, but is this the truth?  Many who have left this church or who are inactive are still counted as members but think themselves separated because they simply quit going.  If one has come to the place of separating ways with Mormonism, it is a very good idea to send a letter to the LDS church so that his/her name will not be included in the membership numbers which may be out of balance with actual "active members". This is called a formal resignation.


I do not believe that one can have their foot in both Mormonism and Christianity, we either serve one or the other but it is impossible to serve both.


The following are links and helps for those who are ready to develop their exit letter from Mormonism.




An example letter:


Member Records Division, LDS Church
50 E North Temple Rm 1372
SLC UT 84150-5310

This letter is our formal resignation from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it is effective immediately. We hereby withdraw our consent to being treated as members and we withdraw our consent to being subject to church rules, policies, beliefs and 'discipline'. As we are no longer members, we want our names permanently and completely removed from the membership rolls of the church. We also insist that our minor children are removed from the membership rolls of the church or as “members of record”.

We have given this matter considerable thought. We understand what you consider the 'seriousness' and the 'consequences' of our actions. We are aware that the church handbook says that our resignation "cancels the effects of baptism and confirmation, withdraws the priesthood held by a male member and revokes temple blessings" We also understand that we will be "readmitted to the church by baptism only after a thorough interview". (quotes from the current Church Handbook of Instructions)

Our resignation should be processed immediately, without any 'waiting periods'. We are not going to be dissuaded and we are not going to change our minds.

We expect this matter to be handled promptly, with respect and with full confidentiality.

After today, the only contact we want from the church is a single letter of confirmation to let us know that we are no longer listed as a member of the church.

We have determined after reading all the evidence that the Book of Mormon is not inspired by God. We do not believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, or that he received direct revelation from God. We also believe that we will be judged someday according to our faith in the Savior, not Joseph Smith. We believe that he taught false doctrine, and that he has led many good people astray, and away from the true teachings of Jesus Christ that are taught in the Bible.
