Kempton New Church School

The New Church:

The Kempton New Church School exists to support parents in teaching their children the doctrines of the New Church. The New Church is based on the theological writings given through Emanuel Swedenborg, thirty-five volumes written between the years 1745 and 1772, which are considered to be Divine Revelation, the Lord’s Second Coming. These works—called the Heavenly Doctrine (or the Writings)—explain the internal sense of the Sacred Scripture (also called the Word), the nature of God, the life of religion, and the nature of life after death. They describe a New Church, truly Christian.

At this day a New Church is being established by the Lord, which is meant by ‘the New Jerusalem’ in the Apocalypse. In it there will be the worship of the Lord alone, as it is in heaven. Thus everything which is contained in the Lord’s Prayer from beginning to end will be fulfilled.
Apocalypse Revealed 839:7
The faith of the New Heaven and the New Church in universal terms is as follows: The Lord from eternity, who is Jehovah, came into the world to subdue the hells and to glorify His Human. Without this no mortal could have been saved, and those are saved who believe in Him.

The particulars of faith on man’s part are these:
  • God is one, in whom is the Divine Trinity, and He is the Lord God the Savior Jesus Christ.
  • A saving faith is to believe in Him.
  • Evil things must not be done because they are of the devil and from the devil.
  • Good things must be done because they are of God and from God.
  • These things must be done by man as if they were done by himself, but he must believe they are from the Lord working with him and through him.
