THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH
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 accepts everybody as a member. You only have to accept the clerical authority of our clergy.
You are welcome!
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.
Where you can find us
At home everywhere on planet Earth.
We are based in Toronto (Canada) and Boston (USA) with a service office in Frankfurt/Main (Germany), but at service for everybody, everywhere on planet Earth with home churches and bible groups in more than 70 countries. 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 in Germany) has been the Supreme Leader of the Christian Universal Life Church since 2015. 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 liberal, 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 Toronto (Canada), but he also travels a lot in order so visit as many followers as possible in person.
His Eminence the Supreme Leader appoints 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 and manage the work of the many local Reverends, Pastors and Teachers:
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.

Order and structure for the glory of God
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."
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?"
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
"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."
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."
Our International Affiliate Program
We support missionaries around the globe.

Our International Christian Affiliate Program.
The word of God and the message of Jesus Christ shall be brought to every human being on this planet. Many wonderful missionaries try their best to achieve this goal, frequently under extremely difficult conditions and at great personal risk. Many of them ask us if they may become a part of the Christian Universal Life Church. The answer to this is "yes" and "no" at the same time.
The name and brand "Christian Universal Life Church" is reserved for such pastors and churches which are under the direct control of our headquarters in Toronto. These pastors and reverends must have undergone a 2 year full-time study of theology at our own academy (tuition-free). We will not allow other missions and missionaries to use our name and brand.
On the other hand we do everything in our power to support missionary works worldwide. We provide logistics, scriptures, ideas and spiritual support. Once a mission has qualified itself as professional and lives up to our own standards, it may be awarded as an "International Affiliate". If you are interested, please talk to our Brother Matthew who is in charge of our international relations: firstname.lastname@example.org
