A bit of information about us...
We are Christian, first and foremost, and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the one God of Heaven and Earth. The Lord teaches us through the Bible and we can learn from its stories in a literal sense, and a deeper meaning that we read about in the Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. For more about our beliefs, please visit https://www.newchurch.org
Carmel New Church’s history began in 1833 as a group of people gathered to study the Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg and his explanation of the Bible’s internal meaning. This grew into the community is it today where we hold worship services every Sunday, organize events and connect with our neighbours, and help people better understand faith and its role in real life.
Starting points for the journey:
Desire to belong, to be a part of something greater than self, wishing well for others.
Step by step building up life principles to guide our thoughts, our words and deeds.
Participating in life by giving His love and wisdom to others through kindness of heart and thoughtfulness of mind.
Our church supports each individual in forging a personal relationship with God, providing direction, strength, and peace for everyday life. Carmel New Church wants lasting spiritual transformation for your life, that impacts not only your life in this world but that prepares you for eternity. We don’t believe in any quick fixes, but rather in a life-long journey of returning over and over to the Lord Jesus Christ as He shows Himself to us through His Word.
Wherever you are in life, whatever mistakes you think you have made, you are not alone and the Lord is making a way for you to move forward. We want to tell you about a Loving God who creates each moment anew that we might leave our past and move forward in loving new way regardless of your previous relationship with the church. The Carmel New Church has a beautiful building but church is not a building. Church is people that love, learn and care together for the well-being of all - in, around, and outside the community.
Whether you’re looking for a warm church community, or seeking a more meaningful spiritual practice, we open our doors to you.
