A Wonderful Welcome to Fifth Spiritualist Church

What is it God expects from me? What is God’s law? We believe it is Natural Law.

Spiritualism holds in it the common threads of many religions.  For instance, the Golden Rule is expressed in all major religions. The wording is a little different but it means the same thing.

In Confucianism:  What you don’t want done to yourself, don’t do to others.

In Buddhism:  Hurt not others with that which pains thyself.

In Hinduism:  Do naught to others which if done to thee would cause pain.

In Judaism:  What is hateful to yourself, don’t do to your fellow man.

In Christianity:  Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.

In Spiritualism:  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

As you can see we are not so different in some of our beliefs. What is important is that you find what you are looking for with your connection with God.

In Spiritualism we say Infinite Intelligence or God. It doesn’t matter what name you use but it is important to find that connection. All religions are good.

Spiritualism is about proving the continuity of life through Spirit communication.

That means life goes on after we make the transition called death, however, we are still who we are with our personalities intact.  With all those in Spirit, guides and family members we don’t have time to be lonely.

 In Spiritualism that the spark of God is within each and every one of us. Life is what we make it. Surrounding yourself with positive energy is very healthful. The Law of Attraction is just one of God’s natural laws.

A Spiritualist is one who believes as the basis of his or her religion, in communication between this world and the spirit world by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mold his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication.

There are only nine principles that the religion of Spiritualism states: They start with either I believe or I affirm. This is because Spirit communication is the basis of our principles and this is what we need to know now, this day in this time. That may change later, so we do not have any dogma or creed.

Our Principles

We believe in Infinite Intelligence (God).

We believe that the phenomena of Nature, both physical and spiritual, are the expression of Infinite Intelligence.

We affirm that a correct understanding of such expression and living in accordance therewith, constitute true religion.

We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continues after the change called death.

We affirm that communication with the so called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.

We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

We affirm the moral responsibility of individuals and that we make our own happiness or unhappiness as we obey or disobey Nature’s physical and spiritual laws.

We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter.

We affirm that the precepts of Prophecy and Healing are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship. 

We hope you join us in church and for community soon!
