The Swedenborg Foundation is not a church, and while we want to encourage people to learn about Swedenborg, it is not our mission to evangelize or to push our visitors into joining a particular church or organization. The list of denominations below is provided only for informational purposes for those who would like to explore Swedenborg’s teachings in a church setting.
Each denomination maintains a list of local congregations on their website, and the sites will also give you a feeling for how each group differs from the others.
