What We Believe.
The Swedenborgian Church is an open-minded, forward looking Christian church drawing its faith from the Bible as illuminated by the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). If you have serious questions about traditional Christian theology, yet wish to explore the deeper aspects of the Bible and the Christian faith, we may be what you are looking for. We worship a God of unconditional love, whose warmth and light can deepen your inner life and give direction to your spiritual journey.
We invite you to explore and learn more about our church and its ministries. And may God bless you on your spiritual journey!
Beginning in 1784, reading groups appeared in Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, Boston, and Cambridge, and later in Virginia and in what would become Ohio and Indiana. Readers distributed books all over the thirteen states and the Northwest Territory. In 1789 Francis Bailey, Pennsylvania’s official printer, published Swedenborg’s True Christian Religion; its subscribers included Benjamin Franklin. By 1817, cloth merchant William Schlatter sent out more than 3,000 of Swedenborg’s books in bales of merchandise.
