The Nine Principles of Spiritualism

  1. We believe in Infinite Intelligence.

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

  3. We affirm that a correct understanding of such expression and living accordance therewith, constitute true religion. 

  4. We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continue after the change called death.

  5. We affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism. 

  6. We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: Whatsoever ye would that others should do unto you, do ye also unto them. 

  7. 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. 

  8. We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul, here or hereafter. 

  9. We affirm that the precepts of Prophecy and Healing contained in the Bible are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship.
