The LDS Church is the 4th (fourth) largest in the U.S.A.

Until recently, the LDS Church has been the fastest-growing religion in the United States.  But Mormons remain the 4th largest single denomination in the country.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints claims nearly 6 million members in the United States.

With significant growth in Brazil (nearly a million Mormons), Mexico (more than one million), and eastern Europe, the Church continues to attain new levels of growth and development around the world.
