An open-minded, forward-looking Christian denomination, the Swedenborgian Church of North America was founded to help people be more open to the Lord’s presence and leading, to facilitate the spiritual well-being of people, and to increase awareness of the new age in which we live. The Swedenborgian Church of North America is member of the National Council of Churches.
Our denomination was instrumental in organizing the first Congress of World Religions, held in Chicago in 1893, and was one of the first churches in the western world teaching that salvation is an inner experience rather than acceptance of a particular doctrine.
Wayfarers Chapel is a Nation Memorial to Emanuel Swedenborg
A haven for seekers who share Emanuel Swedenborg’s quest for a religion that interconnects with all of life, and for a system that allows reasoned questioning of life’s deepest religious issues, the Swedenborgian Church encourages inquiry, respect for differences, and acceptance of other traditions of life and religion. Swedenborg shared in his theological writings a view of God as infinitely loving and at the very center of our being, a view of human life as a continual rebirthing as we participate in our own creation, a view of the Bible as a story of inner-life stages as we learn and grow, a conviction that life continues-following the transition we call death-to an eternity of growing fulfillment, and a central commitment to live so as to help other people.
We have Sunday worship at 10am and a prayer service on Wednesdays at 12noon.
All are welcome.
