Abstract

Among the diverse expressions of the Latter Day Saint movement, the Church of Christ (Temple Lot) or “Hedrickites” (as members of their church have been called historically) is unique in its early claim to a specific revelation to return “as a church” to Jackson County, Missouri, and to redeem or reclaim the “temple lot” in the “center place” of Zion.
