The Christian Church of the 21st century.

  • What we stand for.

    Love. Freedom. Safety.


    Emotion are more important than books.

    We are Christians and believe in the Holy Bible. However, as panentheists we also believe that we all are part of God. This is because God is all that exists and all that exists is God, while He is even far more than all he has ever created (including us). What's the consequence? We believe that we can feel what God "wants" through our intuitions and our emotions. 


    Faith must always be a matter of free will.

    In a world torn apart by crisis, war and immorality, we strongly believe that a place is needed where we can feel safe, welcome and happy. Since the cyberworld has become a part of our daily life, this place has also to be found in the internet. And so, here we are with more than one million believers following us on different channels. Become a part of this movement and join us.


    Love over law.

    We believe that above all, even above any holy book, there is one thing that is more important than any religious law: Love. We believe that God is love and love is God.


    We are where you are.

    We are the global Christian church of the 21st century, reaching out to every corner of the world via the internet; and providing a spiritual home in many local groups.

  • Yes, you can become a member!

    Be part of our community. It's free.

    Becoming a member is easy...

    We welcome everyone with our arms wide open.


    We are the only Christian Church that works completely without monetary funding, is based on voluntary help (no money) and accepts everybody as a member. You only have to accept the clerical authority of our clergy.


    That's all.


    Please note:

    • Leaving our church is always possible without further notice.
    • With your registration you agree to receive our digital newsletter.
    • Your membership will always be free of charge.
    • With your registration as a member, you accept - for the duration of your membership - Jesus as Christ the Messiah, the rules of the Christian Universal Life Church and its theological guidelines as decreed by the Supreme Leader and the Central Committee of the Church.

    You are welcome!

  • Christian Universal Life Church

    The faith for all.

  • What we believe in

    God is all. All is God. But God goes beyond all that exists.

    The Christian Universal Life Church apodictively believes in the Holy Bible, God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Messiah and the Holy Spirit as the matrix of reality: We consider the Messiah to have been a human "avatar" in which God the Father Himself incarnated to teach humanity. The “New Thought Movement” had also an important impact on our theology.

    Where you can find us

    At home everywhere on planet Earth.

    Founded in Toronto, ON (Canada) our HQ is now in Milwaukee, WI with the Social Media Production and Missionary Center being located in Boston, MA. We are 24/7 at service for everybody, everywhere on planet Earth with home churches and bible groups in more than 70 countries, offerering regular Sunday service, including Sunday schools for the next generation. Surprisingly our largest communities are, at the moment, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Algeria and Kurdistan - regions where a Christian church is not the most likely option. So we sail with God in command and are willing to let Him surprise us. When you are at a place where we have a church or group you may visit our meetings or services. But you can also become a member of our church wherever you live via the internet. It will never cost you anything and you can leave our church at any time, even without further notice. We believe that one of the most important teachings of God is "freedom with responsibility". So we as the Christian Universal Life Church will never impose anything on you. Our belief is that "the truth lies within yourself, that is within your soul". If you need a blessing for yourself or for your loved ones, just contact us. Our Pastors bless everybody who asks for a blessing. Just ask us or visit our site on our 24/7 service on facebook at www.fb.com/christian.ulc - You are welcome!

    Our Supreme Leader & The Clergy

    Even a liberal faith needs a guide.

    Reverend Elias (*1976) is the Supreme Leader of the Christian Universal Life Church. His religious teachings are binding for all faith-members of the Christian Universal Life Church. However, his spiritual doctrine and attitude are considered to be rather compassionate conservative, panentheistic and nonconformist. After his inauguration he set a goal: Let's make the Christian Universal Life Church the #1 of all internet churches and make sure that our religion will never take fees or accept donations. "Make the world a more colorful place" is his order. He strongly believes in volunteer work and leads the church from Milwaukee (USA) and his place of living in the Toronto area (Canada). Elias I. also travels a lot in order to visit as many followers as possible in person.


    The Christian Universal Life Church is not organized in a worldly way. The first and last word has God, the One and Threefold through His Eminence the Supreme Leader. He appoints and directs the top clergy. Currently he is being supported in his work by his deputy, Archbishop Sister Jemima, Bishops, Ambassadors and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. They all execute the Supreme Leader's decisions, doctrines and orders, as they are also coordinating the work of the many local Reverends, Pastors and Teachers:

    • Supreme Leader: His Eminence Elias I.
    • Deputy Supreme Leader: Archbishop Jemima
    • Deputy Supreme Leader: Dr. Dr. Ari Samaria
    • Secretary General: Ambassador Evangelia
    • Head of Doctrine: Reverend Agnetha
    • Head of Operations: First Bishop Jonah Samuelson
    • Head of Philosophy: Bishop Matthew
    • Head of Foreign Relations: Ambassador Evangelia
    • Head of Seminary Organizations: Dean Father Rahim
    • Head of Education and Social Affairs: Dean Bishop Maria
    • Head of Political Affairs: Dr. Dr. Ari Samaria
    • Head of Administration: Ambassador Evangelia
    • Head of Interreligious Affairs: Ambassador Taravati
    • Head of Hindu Affairs: Ambassador Rahul Joe Gupta
    • Head of Intercultural Affairs: Ambasssador Rayan

    Prayers & Candles online

    Light a candle of hope.

    The internet makes it possibles: You can light a candle and pray for a moment in the silence of a virtual chapel. It is not important what your original religion is: lighting a candle and praying to God can never be wrong. May you be blessed!

    Welcome in the online chapel

    The World's first Christian Panentheistic Church.

    Our "ancestor church", the ULC of Modesto, has been in existence since 1959. It has 38 million members as of 2016 and teaches the universal doctrine of religious freedom:


    "Do only that which is right".


    The Christian Universal Life Church is an independent global church with over one million members, based in Toronto (Canada, Headquarter), Boston (United States, Media Production Center) and Frankfurt (Germany, Missionary Support Division), but it is at home globally and on the internet. We are a panentheistic Christian Church run by volunteers around the globe. We believe in the Holy Bible and four principles:


    Objective: Eternal Progression.
    Goal: A Fuller Life for Everyone.
    Slogan: To Live and Help Live.
    Maxim: We Are One.


    Our Church also apodictively believes in the Holy Bible, God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Messiah and the Holy Spirit as the matrix of reality: We consider the Messiah to have been a human "avatar" in which God the Father Himself incarnated to teach humanity.


    Please note: Some ULCs sell items, titles or take donations, we don't. We sell nothing and take no donations. We are a pure faith run by volunteers and not a business.

  • God wants to talk to you.

    And it is quite interesting what he has to say.

    The Bible, Luke 6:37

    Do not judge.

    "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."

    Seth Material

    Reality is an ilusion.

    "The physical system is an illusion, but you must accept it and from your viewpoint try to understand the realities that exist beyond it."

    The Bible, Matthew 7:3

    Do not condemn others.

    "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?"

    Seth Material

    You get back whatever you send out.

    "It is wrong to curse a flower and wrong to curse a man. It is wrong not to hold any man in honor, and it is wrong to ridicule any man. You must honor yourselves and see within yourselves the spirit of eternal validity. You must honor all other individuals, because within each is the spark of this validity. When you curse another, you curse yourselves, and the curse returns to you. When you are violent, the violence returns."

    The Bible, Matthew 7:7

    Trust in God.

    ""Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

    The Bible, Luke 11:10


    "For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."

    The Bible, Luke 18:10

    True faith.

    "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other people--robbers, evildoers, adulterers--or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."

    Seth Material

    You are more than yourself.

    "Each of you exists in other realities and other dimensions, and the self that you call yourself is but a small portion of your entire identity."

    The Bible, Mark 12:17

    Secularism as a Christian value.

    "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's."

    Seth 2:13 (non-biblical)

    Camouflage of reality.

    “The brain is a camouflage pattern. It takes up space. It exists in time. The mind takes up no space, it does not have its basic existence in time. The reality of the inner universe does not take up space, nor does it have its basic existence in time. Your camouflage universe, on the other hand, takes up space and has an existence in time, but it is not the real and basic universe, any more than the brain is the mind.”

    The Bible, Matthew 5:43

    Love your enemies.

    "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."

    You can ask us, whatever the topic may be.

  • ULC Ordinations & Titles

    The Christian ULC Validation Office.

    The Christian ULC Validation Office.

    You need to contact our validation center.

    To get your ULC Modesto or CULC Milwaukee certificates validated or confirmed you need to contact our International Validation Center at ulc.validation-center@priest.com - Our very well trained staff will be able to check our own database and the one of our parent church, the ULC Headquarters in Modesto, California. We do not recognize any title, ordination or degree of other ULC congregations other than the aforementioned. We can als check and confirm ULCO/ U.S.A. certificates if they are the result of a course study by the ULCHQ in California. You may address us in English, French, Spanish, Greek, Russian, German, Thai and Chinese.

    Is my ordination by a ULC valid here?

    Does this congregation recognize ULC ordinations?

    The Christian Universal Life Church does not recognize ordinations administered by any other ULC church. As clergy members we only accept professional theologians with a university degree which were further trained as ministers by teachers in our congregation.

    Titles awarded by the ULC.

    Is my religious ULC title valid with this congregation?

    We do recognize some ULC Modesto titles such as degrees which are the result of a religious course study. If you want your Modesto ULC title to be approved by the Christian Universal Life Church you need to send in your documents for a validation process. In most cases we acknowledge IAA accredited course studies (ULCO/U.S.A.) if the tests or exams meet our high standards.

    Course studies?

    Does this church ordain laymen or offer titles?

    We do not sell titles or anything similar because we are a real Bona Fide Church. We train our own missionaries on a solid ULCO level for internal purposes. These course studies are strictly clerical, free of tuition fees and meant to prepare our staff for their global missionary tasks. This also applies to honorary titles of any kind. Contact us at christian.church@priest.com to find out if you are entitled to work through our course studies and to graduate at our church-owned and completely tuition free course studies. Web based distant learning programs are also offered, again tuition free. We never take money.

  • Arnulf Seminary of Theology

    Our elite school for the leaders of the future.

    The CULC Pastoral Seminary

    Learn more about our theological framework.

    For postgraduate students (people who already have a university degree) the PA accredited Arnulf Seminary for Theology offers a broad range of tuition-free course studies in modern process theology, gnosticism, the teachings of Master Eckhart, the philosophy of Karl Jaspers and advanced methods of missionary work.


    All course studies are tuition-free and multiple series of acceptance tests are imperative prerequisites for becoming a student at the Arnulf Seminary. Once our students have comleted a course study at the CULC owned Arnulf Seminary of Theology they will be certified as CULC trained Pastors and/ or Reverends.


    Due to the fact that not many schools for process theology exist, to become accepted as a student at the Arnulf Seminary is a privilege for the few, but is open to many.

    Compassionate Theology.

    The Arnulf Seminary of Theology offers a thrilling and rewarding immersion in the world’s faith traditions and theological subjects, focused on process theology and missionary work. Coursework and conversation, field education, spiritual excellence, a diverse student body, and ULCO Seminary’s unparalleled resources in the field of evangelical theology create a broad and deep educational experience where students with good intentions are welcome.

    Theology at its best

    Compassionate Theology.

    Our Arnulf Seminary of Theology is proud to offer course studies in the whole range of religious traditions from the ancient Gnostic traditions to modern Christian movements and Jewish philosophies, Buddhism, and Hindu arts and culture. The Study of Religion is exciting and challenging because of the conversations that take place across the complexities of congregations, traditions, and intellectual commitments.
