International Spiritualist Alliance
The International Spiritualist Alliance is a Canadian-based
international Spiritualist church founded for the purpose of
bringing brotherhood and unity to Spiritualists worldwide. It
has succeeded in bringing congregations in Canada, the United
States, and Great Britain together. The alliance operates out
of a loose fellowship association. Members accept seven affirmations
concerning the fatherhood of God, the brotherhood
of man, the immortality of the soul, communion with the departed,
personal responsibility, compensation for good and
evil, and the eternal progress of the soul. These affirmations
are set within a general Christian theology that accepts God as
the loving creator and Jesus as the Lord incarnated for the salvation
of humanity. Perfected in suffering, Jesus became Lord
and Christ. The church is headed by the Rev. Beatrice Gaulton
Bishop of Vancouver, British Columbia. Current address unavailable.
