Quotes From the Word      and the writings of      Emanuel Swedenborg

The Gospel of John
Jn 14:21,24 & 15:10,12
He who has My commandments and does them, he it is who loves Me. But he who does not love Me does not keep My words. If you keep My commands, you will remain in My love. This is My commandment, that you love one another.

Emanuel Swedenborg
Arcana Coelestia 10143
In short, acting in accord with the Lord's commandments constitutes true worship of Him, indeed constitutes true love and true faith, as may also become clear to anyone who stops to consider the matter. For there is nothing that a person who loves another, and who believes in another, would rather do than to will and to do what that other wills and thinks; his only desire is to know his will and thought, and so what is pleasing to him. It is different in the case of one who has no such love or belief.

Sunday Worship

We seek to offer a collective worship experience in our Sunday Service that follows a reasonably familiar format of Christian Church worship built around the singing of hymns, prayer and the preaching of the Lordís Word. We do have a unique approach to understanding the Bible in that we regard its message as primarily aimed at the inner life of our spirits. Thus while a large proportion of the text may, at least on the surface, appear to be historical in its emphasis we see within its stories a deeper level of meaning that relates to supporting living a spiritual life. This life is one focussed on cultivating a genuine concern for the spiritual well being of others through a relationship with the Lord God Jesus Christ in obedience to what He teaches us in His Word. Many have found that this way of understanding the biblical text not only makes it incredibly relevant to their lives but it also is able to reconcile many of its seemingly difficult passages with an understanding of God as a supremely loving and compassionate Lord who works continually for the eternal well being of all people throughout all faiths and spiritual traditions.
