Why Do I Need an LDS Account?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers a lot of online information and services, much of which is personalized to your identity and Church calling. For example, on LDS.org you can sign in and view your ward directory and calendar. You can access resources specific to your calling. You can view Church buildings and sites near your location. There’s even a Study Notebook where you can highlight passages and create journal entries. In fact, there are dozens of new Church websites offering similar personalized experiences. To access these and other resources, you need an LDS Account. What Is LDS Account? Your LDS Account provides you with a single user name and password to access all Church websites.

Church websites draw upon this data to personalize the information shown to you and to expand the resources you can access.
