#ThursdayThoughts, “We Believe…”

As Swedenborgians We believe that:

We may approach our spirituality with understanding.
Questioning is part of our spiritual journey.

The “church” is more than a building or an organization.
It is all people throughout the world who live by the love and truth they are given to know.

God is one, known by many names.
We understand God to be loving and never angry or vengeful.

Jesus was and is God in human form.
Jesus came to restore spiritual freedom – to reestablish our right to choose what we believe and how we live our lives.

The Bible is the foundation of our theology and a guide for our spiritual growth.
Furthermore, our understanding of the Bible is guided by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th Century theologian and scientist.
