About our Church
Welcome to our Church family.
From it's founding in 1925 as the Winnebago Spiritualist Camp up until today, the Christabelle Spiritualist Church continues striving to share the knowledge and wisdom that life and love go on beyond the death of the physical body.
Through the use of mediums and the practice of mediumship, proof is given to show that our loved still look after us and that communication with those in the afterlife is not only normal but a natural extension of our lives here on Earth.
It is the Spiritualist belief that as long as we strive to live in accordance with nature's laws, we will be rewarded in this life and in the next.
Our congregation has changed a lot over the years but it continues to share the messages of hope, faith, and empowerment that Spiritualism provides.
Come join in our Sunday service and allow us to show you what our little chapel in the woods has to offer your life.
Come Grow With Us.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 11 am for our church service. Each and every sermon will focus on the importance of living a positive and uplifting life to guide you and provide insights to help you live life in accordance with Nature's laws to be a better, stronger, happier person.
At the end of each church service the attending mediums will be delivering messages from Spirit for the congregation to receive messages of love, hope, healing, and closure all to provide an empowering start to the week ahead.
Prior to the start of the church service is an individual healing service starting at 10:30 am for those who need it. Spiritual healing is a non invasive form of Spiritual energy healing that treats the entire mind, body, and soul.
The Science and Religion of Spiritualism
The Spiritualist Sunday School is known as the Lyceum, a name conceived by its founder, Andrew Jackson Davis. Taught in the Lyceum are the fundamental truths of Spiritualism–its history, science, philosophy and religion, lessons about living in accordance with Nature's laws.
If you are interested in learning more about Spiritualism, join us most Sundays before church at 9:45 am.
What We Believe
Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World. (1919)
Spiritualism Is a Science because it investigates, analyzes and classifies facts and manifestations demonstrated from the spirit side of life.
Spiritualism Is a Philosophy because it studies the Laws of Nature both on the seen and unseen sides of life and bases its conclusions upon present observed facts. It accepts statements of observed facts of past ages and conclusions drawn therefrom, when sustained by reason and by results of observed facts of the present day.
Spiritualism Is a Religion because it strives to understand and to comply with the Physical, Mental and Spiritual Laws of Nature, which are the laws of God.
A Spiritualist is one who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in the communication between this and the Spirit World by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mould his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication. (1914, Rev. 1938)
A Medium is one whose organism is sensitive to vibrations from the spirit world and through whose instrumentality, intelligences in that world are able to convey messages and produce the phenomena of Spiritualism. (1914)
A Spiritualist Healer is one who, either through one’s own inherent powers or through mediumship, is able to impart vital, curative force to pathologic conditions. (1930, 1993)
The Phenomena of Spiritualism consists of Prophecy, Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Gift of Tongues, Laying on of Hands, Healing, Visions, Trance, Apports, Levitation, Raps, Automatic and Independent Writings and Paintings, Voice, Materialization, Photography, Psychometry and any other manifestation proving the continuity of life as demonstrated through the Physical and Spiritual senses and faculties of man. (1950)
