SPIRITUALISM

SPIRITUALISM is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World. 

The Objects of Spiritualism

To teach the truths and principles expressed in the Declaration of Principles and in the Definitions of "Spiritualism," "A Spiritualist", "A Medium" and "A Spiritualist Healer" as adopted by the National Spiritualist Association of Churches of the United States of America;

  • To teach and proclaim the Science, Philosophy and Religion of Modern Spiritualism.

  • To encourage lectures on all subjects pertaining to the spiritual and secular welfare of humanity.

  • To protest against every attempt to compel humanity to worship God in any particular or prescribed manner.

  • To advocate and promote spiritual healing, and to protect and encourage Spiritualist teachers and mediums in all laudable efforts in giving evidence of proof to humanity of a continued intercourse and relationship between the living and the so-called dead.

  • To encourage every person in holding present beliefs always open to restatement as growing thought and investigation reveal understanding of new truths thereby, leaving every individual free to follow the dictates of reason and conscience in spiritual as in secular affairs.

Spiritualism is a religion and philosophy of life focused on joy, harmony, and a fear-free understanding of the continuity of life.

 – Rev. Christine Krithades, President of the NSAC

Declaration of Principles

The following Declaration of Principles is published to the world, not as a creed binding on the conscious of the individual, but as the consensus of a very large majority of Spiritualists on the fundamental teachings of Spiritualism:

  1. We believe in Infinite Intelligence.  

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

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

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

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

  6. We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: "Whatsoever ye would that others should do unto you, do ye also unto them."  

  7. 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.  

  8. The doorway to reformation is never closed against and soul, here or hereafter.
      

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