Augusto Alandy Lim (born May 4, 1934) was a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1992 to 1997. He was the first Filipino Latter-day Saint to become a general authority. Michael J. Teh, sustained to the First Quorum of the Seventy in 2007, was the second Filipino general authority.
Lim was born in Santa Cruz, Marinduque, Philippines, the first of seven sons of Leon B. Lim and Beatriz R. Alandy Lim.
A convert to the LDS Church, Lim was baptized in October 1964. Prior to his call as a general authority, Lim had served as a stake president and as president of the church's Philippines Naga Mission. He was a practising lawyer in the Philippines.
In July 1992, Lim was ordained to the priesthood office of seventy and became a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. He was honorably released from his duties as a general authority on October 4, 1997. During his time as a general authority, he served as a counselor to Ben B. Banks in the presidency of the church's the Philippines/Micronesia Area, with Kenneth Johnson as the other counselor. He later served as president of the Manila Philippines Temple.
In 1992, Lim wrote an article for the Ensign, which was later mentioned by Bringhurst and Anderson in their work Excavating Mormon Pasts: The New Historiography of the Last Half Century
