Declaration of Principles

These words are the foundation of Modern Spiritualism. They are recited at every Sunday Church Service in every NSAC Church throughout the Country. There have been thousands of books and pamphlets written about Spirit Communications and Spiritualism, but the core of all our understanding is contained in these 9 sentences.

"As the sunflower turns its face toward to the light of the sun, so Spiritualism turns the face of humanity toward the light of Truth."

The sunflower is the symbol for Spiritualism.
