An Independent Spiritualist Church  Gahanna, Ohio


"Spiritualism is a Science" because it investigates, analyzes, and classifies facts and manifestations from the spirit side of life.

"Spiritualism is a Philosophy" because it studies the laws of nature on both the seen and unseen sides of life

and bases its conclusions upon the present observed facts. It accepts statements of observed facts from past ages and conclusions drawn there from, when sustained by reason and by results of observed facts of the present day.

"Spiritualism is a Religion" because it strives to comply with the Physical, Mental and spiritual Laws of Nature, "which are the Laws of God".



Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact

of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the spirit world.

Medium is one whose organism is sensitive to vibrations from the spirit world and through whose instrumentality intelligence's in that world are able to convey messages and produce the phenomena of Spiritualism.

Spiritualist Healer is one who, either through his own inherent powers or through his mediumship, is able to impart vital, curative force to pathologic conditions.
