The Aaronic Order is a Latter Day Saint denomination founded in 1942 by Maurice L. Glendenning. A former member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Glendenning was excommunicated by the LDS Church for publishing a collection of revelations called the Levitical Writings. The Aaronic Order claims to have about 2000 members throughout the United States. In 1956, the church established a communal settlement called EskDale, Utah.
The church's mission is "to participate in and hasten the preparation of the Body of Jesus Christ for His second coming." And its vision is to "restore the Biblical, Levitical ministry to its prophesied fulness in Jesus Christ and to reconcile individuals, families, and fellowships to their places in the Body of Christ."
