Church of Jesus Christ (Toneyite)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Church of Jesus Christ is a sect of the Latter Day Saint movement that was organized by Forrest Toney in 1980.

Toney was raised as a member of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Spokane, Washington. He later moved to Independence, Missouri and in 1977 claimed that he began receiving visions and revelations from God. In a 1980 vision, he was ordained to the high priesthood and told to preach.

The RLDS Church refused to let Toney preach, so he began holding services in the Blue Hills Elementary School in Independence and placed advertisements in a local newspaper. Later that year, Toney and some of his followers organized the Church of Jesus Christ, with Toney as "Elijah and only High Priest" of the organization.
