The Church of Jesus Christ Restored 1830 is a small sect in the Latter Day Saint movement that is headquartered in Buckner, Missouri. The church broke away from the Restoration Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the year 2000 under the leadership of five members of the First Quorum of Restoration Seventies.

The church believes that there are three presidential quorums the decisions of which have equal authority when quorum decisions are unanimous.

The Church of Jesus Christ Restored 1830 claims to be the rightful successor to the Church of Christ established by Joseph Smith on April 6, 1830. It teaches that anyone can receive revelations for that area of stewardship that they are responsible for. It believes that the President of the High Priesthood is chosen by the body of the church and is given the gifts and talents that belong to that office and calling. It accepts those revelations [approved by conference or assembly action] that were given of God to Joseph Smith, who is considered a prophet of God and the first President of the High Priesthood.

The church registered its name with the state of Missouri on October 6, 2000. It has members in numerous states of the United States and in Australia, Nigeria, Ghana, and Côte d'Ivoire.
