The Kirtland temple is the highlight of a trip to Kirltand, OH. Although the temple is now owned by the Community of Christ church (previously referred to as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) members of our faith continue to believe it to be a sacred space. We believe at some point Christ will reclaim the church as a house of the Lord and his visits to this place will continue.

The Kirtland Temple is located in Kirtland, Ohio.
