New Church Now is a multi-denominational, non-denominational, any/every tradition place where people from any local church or no local church can connect and invite their friends into the global network of people who know about and use what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote. It is an independent social network of affirmative New Church and Swedenborgian people where users can stay connected, update their friends on their status, form groups, invite friends, write blogs, live chat with friends, participate in forum discussions, schedule or attend local events, share photos and videos, and stay connected with their walk of faith, congregational life, and love for all things Swedenborg in a positive community environment.
New Church Now is by-invitation-only to increase its reach and support its mission of providing a positive online community for its user base through increased visitor engagement and participation. Every person who registers is asked to confirm that they are affirmative towards what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote (a simple “Yes” to a Yes/No question, nothing too deep) in order to provide a friendly community environment that people will be excited to invite their friends to join.
The site is, and always will be, structured as a Pay-If-You-Want-To site, where users can join for FREE or pay up to $99.95/month if they want to support the expansion and development of the community. It’s simple to join and once you are a member its easy to invite others.
