Mormon is a nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Jesus states in the Bible (New Testament) "Other sheep I have which, are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."

In the Book of Mormon, Jesus states "And verily I say unto you, that ye are they of whom I said: 'Other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.'"
3rd Nephi, Chapter 15, Verse 21.
