SALT LAKE CITY, (ABC 4 Utah) – Thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints descended on Temple Square Saturday for the 183rd semi-annual General Conference.

With three of five sessions complete, church members are buzzing about historic growth.

Church President, Thomas S. Monson reminded church members about their faith's humble beginnings.

In 1830 the church had just 6 members, but just weeks ago membership reached a major milestone.

Monson announced Saturday church membership had reached fifteen million.

He also said there are now more than eighty thousand missionaries serving around the world.

That’s an increase of more than twenty thousand since the church lowered the age just last year.
