The Remnant Church maintains belief in a geophysical "Zion", a central belief of the Church during the time of Joseph Smith Jr., but considered somewhat debatable by many factions of the Latter Day Saint movement today.
The Remnant Church considers itself to be a remnant of the Church of Christ as founded by Joseph Smith in 1830, thus being the "one true church". It was renewed and incorporated as a separate organization in 2000 following some disaccord with some of the practices of Community of Christ including female priesthood.
Members of the Remnant Church believe in the doctrine of lineal succession. The prophet of the Remnant Church, President Frederick Niels Larsen, is a direct descendant (maternal 2nd great-grandson) of Joseph Smith, Jr. The church has its headquarters near the Temple Lot, across from the Independence Temple and headquarters of the Community of Christ.
