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

We affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.
- We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
- 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.
- We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter.
