ARE WE A CHURCH?
Technically, no. A temple is a temple. A mosque is a mosque. A church is a church. They belong to different faith traditions than us. We are a spiritual center, which is still too generic to belong to one faith tradition, so it's not a perfect definition. But we think it suggests that we are trying to differentiate ourselves from Christian, Jewish, Islam. et al. We're also called " New Thought", which works if you ignore the fact that our belief system started thousands of years ago. We are a belief system that is still unfolding.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE
Belief is a very personal thing, and no two people hold completely identical beliefs. Just as God does not make two snowflakes identical, neither does IT make two humans the same. Each person has his/her own unique path to God / Enlightenment / Deep Meaning and Purpose in life. That's what we believe. The Heart Space Teachings community is here to help you with study, worship, and friendly support from our hearts to yours. As a wise spiritual icon once said, "by their fruits ye shall know them". Work on your inside first, and abundance and wellbeing will appear as your outer manifestations.
Heart Space Teachings is an independent spiritual community, affiliated with the Agape International Spiritual Center, led by Dr. Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, founder and senior minister. Our spiritual director, Rev. Marilyn Pelz, earned her ministerial degree at Agape with an M.S. in Higher Consciousness. We choose to align with Agape, because they "walk their talk" and "sing their song" in a way that totally resonates and aligns with our own heart-felt teachings.
OUR PURPOSE STATEMENT
