Christward Principles

Esoteric Christian Teachings

The Christ Way is taught by every Adept, for the Christ Ideal stands for human brotherhood, human development and human perfection. The work of the Christ Spirit is embodied by all those Perfected Beings who strive for human betterment.

We believe that if the Christ Spirit can be made a vital part of our existence, its influence will unify, heal and transform world conditions... This Christian renaissance would begin its regeneration first in single individuals, but gradually the Light broadcast from these endeavors would be mirrored in every receptive heart throughout the land.
