Church of the truth

Church of Truth refers to a community of ministries in the United States, founded in 1913.

History

Dr. Albert C. Grier founded his first Church of the Truth in 1913 in Washington State in the town of Spokane. This was the first of 22 Churches of Truth founded by him in the early 20th Century. His aim was to create a place which would heal the total human, mind, body and soul, and thus create a full awakening of the Christ within.

The Church of Truth is part of the loosely formed New Thought movement. The Church of Truth has a vision: "We are inclusive community of Christ centered, prosperous healing ministries, which through affirmative prayer and support, empower all people to awaken the Christ within."
