This denomination bases its theology on the work of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), a Swedish scientist and theologian. Swedenborg saw a new Christianity coming into being, revitalized by the Spirit of the Lord. It comprises a number of church organizations. Using the Bible as the foundation for their theology, they see within its pages two parallel stories: the historical account of people, places and events; and within that account a deeper, spiritual reflection of our individual journeys. Thus, they claim, the Bible is alive and fresh today, speaking to us directly about our spiritual growth and pilgrimage.
