Mission Statement

Founded on November 15, 1997, the United States Spiritist Federation was created to promote the union of the U.S. Spiritist organizations and the unification of the Spiritist Movement in the U.S. We welcome all visitors to our website and invite Spiritist organizations to join the USSF. This way, counting on each other’s help and support, the task of disseminating Spiritism will be shared by all.

The United States Spiritist Federation will devote its best efforts to bring together the Spiritist community in the U.S. in our common objective to disseminate the Spiritist Doctrine in this country. As such, the USSF pledges to:

1. Promote the fraternal union of the U.S. Spiritist institutions, and the unification of the national Spiritist Movement.

2. Promote the study, diffusion, and practice of the Spiritist Doctrine according to its principles and postulates, and in all its fundamental scientific, philosophical, religious, ethical, and moral aspects.

3. Promote the practice of spiritual and material charity in the light of Spiritism.

4. Represent the Spiritist Movement in the United States.

Formation of New Centers

1. Spiritist Meetings and Spiritist Books.
Spiritist study meetings utilize primarily the five books of Kardec’s Codification (The Spirits’ Book, The Mediums’ Book, The Gospel According to Spiritism, The Genesis, and Heaven and Hell), as well as other complementary materials. Mediumistic sessions should only be carried out with workers prepared for this practice and under the supervision and assistance of persons responsible and experienced in such meetings.

2. Name for the Spiritist Group/Center.
A group that meets regularly should choose a name for itself. It is always advisable to choose a name in English for centers in the U.S. Allan Kardec Spiritist Study Group of [insert name of your city or state], or Spiritist Society of [insert name of your city, county or state] are always good choices. Of course there are other names that reflect the practice of the Doctrine – simple and dignified. Once the name is chosen – congratulations! – send the information together with address and contact to the USSC for website posting.
