At the heart of the faith of the New Church is the idea that God wants us to use the truths He has taught us.

Our goal as a church is not to simply talk about the truth, but to help people bring the light of truth into their everyday lives—into their habits and their choices.

We don't claim to have all the answers. We're trying to figure life out, just like everybody else. But we believe that God wants to help us find answers. He doesn't want us to live in the dark, and He doesn't want us to feel like we're forced to accept irrational ideas. In the Bible He calls Himself a Teacher, and like any good teacher, His goal is to lead us step-by-step towards a better understanding, and a better way of life.
