The Apostolic United Brethren (AUB) is a polygamous Mormon fundamentalist church within the Latter Day Saint movement. The AUB has had a temple in Ozumba, Mexico, since the 1990s or earlier, and an Endowment house in Utah since the early 1980s. The AUB is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
The title "Apostolic United Brethren" is not generally used by members, who prefer to call it "The Work", "The Priesthood", or "The Group". Those outside the faith sometimes refer to it as the "Allred Group" because two of its presidents shared that surname. Members of the AUB do not refer to their organization as a "church" and, unlike nearly all other Mormon fundamentalist groups, regard the LDS Church as a legitimate, if wayward and diminished, divine institution. The sect does not have ties to other Churches of the Brethren or associated groups.
The AUB furnished a detailed description of their beliefs and practices in August 2009 to the Utah Attorney General's "Polygamy Primer", a copy of which can be read online . This booklet is used to educate the general public and social relief agencies involved with similar groups.

You that of justice hold the sovreign throne?
And call ye this to yield, O sons of dust,
To wronged brethren evry man his own?”
