New Church Perspective (NCP) is a leading source of current and insightful Swedenborgian-influenced and New Christian exploration. It is a web based community that connects people from all over the world, fostering an expanding vision of the Lord and heaven and inspiring direct, individual connection with the Lord and His Word.

NCP is an open space for thoughtfully considered and respectful discourse about the Word, the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, and our lives. We offer weekly content that explores current and relevant ideas. It is a space free from personal attack that allows for the variety of experience, opinion, confirmation, and negativity that occurs in our widening community; it is a collaborative forum for ideas that can be put to use. All contributors are valued.

It is a first concern of NCP that the website be beautiful and organized, with a simple and clear structure. We work to maintain a design that is current, user-friendly, and reflects our priorities as a whole. We welcome your feedback.

We are fully supported by donations, of time and/or money, to meet the needs of running the website sustainably. We appreciate all contributions.
