var site="sm1QuakerInfo" Declaration of Faith Issued by the Richmond Conference in 1887
Section Links
EXPLANATORY NOTE: A conference of 95 delegates appointed by 12 Friends (Quaker) yearly meetings representing the Orthodox branch of Friends across the world met in Richmond, Indiana in September 1887. This conference issued a Declaration of Faith , which has been widely used by Orthodox Friends ever since. This is one of the three major doctrinal documents for Orthodox Friends. The others are the Letter to the Governor of Barbadoes and Essential Truths (N.B. It should be understood that the quotations from Scripture are made from the Authorized Version unless stated to be from the Revised Version.) It is under a deep sense of what we owe to Him who has loved us that we feel called upon to offer a declaration of those fundamental doctrines of Christian truth that have always been professed by our branch of the Church of Christ.
We believe in one holy, (Isa. 6:3, 58:15) almighty, (Gen. 17:1) all-wise, (Rom. 11:33, 16:27) and everlasting (Ps 90:1-2) God, the Father, (Matt 11:25-27) the Creator (Gen 1:1) and Preserver (Job 7:20) of all things; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, by whom all things were made, (John 1:30) and by whom all things consist; (Col 1:17) and in one Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and the Son, (John 15:26, 16:7) the Reprover (John 16:8) of the world, the Witness for Christ, (John 15:26) and the Teacher, (John 14:26) Guide, (John 16:13) and Sanctifier (2 Thess 2:13) of the people of God; and that these three are one in the eternal Godhead; (Matt 28:19, John 10:30, 17:21) to whom be honor, praise, and thanksgiving, now and forever. Amen.

religious society of friends. We are restraint. Signed for Britain Yearly Meeting of the religious society of friends, September 2002. Beryl
Religious Society of Friends We are deeply concerned that military action against Iraq is proposed by the United States and alarmed lest our own Government support such action. We join other churches, faiths and wider society opposing military action and advocating a non-violent approach to Iraq. Our goal for Iraq must be the same as for any nation - a just and sustainable peace for its people and its neighbours. We acknowledge concern about the behaviour of the Iraqi Government; however Iraq's recent history shows that neither economic suppression of Iraq nor military action against it can bring peace or justice. War with Iraq might kill vast numbers of people already suffering the effects of economic sanctions. We fear that it would extend violence across the region, globally even, creating more violence and suffering in the future. It would encourage extremists and violent insurgents. Weapons of mass destruction might be used by either side. No ends justify such means. War would also intensify religious and ethnic conflict within our own communities in the UK. The policies of industrialised countries, including the UK, have contributed to the causes of the current conflict over decades. Acknowledgement of this is part of the way forward. Extensive military exports to Iraq from the UK, among other nations, in recent decades escalated the danger. The UK remains one of the world's largest exporters of arms, including arms to repressive governments. Failure to abolish weapons of mass destruction encourages their acquisition by Iraq. The importance of Gulf oil leads to attempts to control the region and subverts the proper goals of peace and stability. It is particularly disturbing that the US Government seeks to impose change of regime in Iraq.

Britain Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends "A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil that good may come of it."
William Penn 1693

We are deeply saddened by the decision to launch a war. We pray for combatants and non-combatants alike. We pray that God's grace will bring a rapid cessation. No end justifies the killing, maiming and bereaving of innocent people who already suffer economic sanctions. We fear that violence in the region will increase and undermine work for peaceful change. Ethnic and religious differences may be exacerbated. Support for political extremists across the world seems likely to increase. We deplore governments' disregard of the United Nations' constitutional objective to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war", an objective which U.N. weapons' inspection sought to pursue. War is not the Christian way. Pray with us for the renouncing of all war.

  • 128. Hamilton Monthly Meeting Of The Religious Society Of Friends (Quakers) -
    A SIMPLE RELIGION FOR A COMPLEX WORLD? The religious society of friends Quakers. A common theme on the religion pages of most newspapers
    The Religious Society of Friends - Quakers
    A common theme on the religion pages of most newspapers these days is that many churches are experiencing decreasing attendance. Whether this is because of a sense of despair over what seems to be the mess humankind has made of our world, or for some other, less apocalyptic reason, such as busyness or apathy, it strikes me that turning one's back on religion may not be the most helpful response. If we are despairing, or too busy, or apathetic, we may need support for our spiritual lives more than ever. A recent resurgence of interest in music (and other observances) of an essentially spiritual nature attests to the fact that many people do feel a deep need for God, even if that need is not met in a church service. Those who, despite the inherent reticence of the Religious Society of Friends, learn about Quakerism may find the directness and practicality of this three-centuries-old faith very appealing. When I first came to a Meeting for Worship, I found a special spiritual energy resulting when the Light within all the worshippers is focused - "centred" - to provide an illumination that one can rarely experience alone. It is something I want to share with others who are seeking answers to their questions - about both the outward and the inward worlds. The Quaker faith began in the mid-1600s in England, with the journeys and preaching of George Fox, one of many who found the dogmatic and liturgical state church spiritually unsatisfying. As a result of his personal struggle and revelations, he felt compelled to travel - on foot! - around England, talking about his insights: in particular that there is "that of God" in every person, and that each of us can find and communicate with God without requiring clergy or ritual. He found a great following among those who, like him, were seeking a closer relationship with the Divine.

    Religious Society of Friends
    The first Europeans to settle Burlington were members of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers. Founded by George Fox in seventeenth-century England, the Friends quickly met with persecution for their refusal to bear arms, take oaths, and pay tithes. Less than a quarter-century after the Society was founded, Friends began leaving England for the religious freedom of America. More than one third of those originally purchasing land in Burlington had been fined or imprisoned for their beliefs in England. Even as their ship, the Kent, sailed down the Thames River, King Charles II boarded it from his royal barge and wished them a safe voyage. As the King's own laws led to much of the abuse the Quakers received in England, this blessing is usually viewed as a polite "go away," at best. Since 1677, Burlington has been the home of many Friends, including

    Welcome! Who are the builders of, and worshippers at this meeting house? Are we only a sect of the past, or do we really still exist today? We, who have been called Seekers of the Truth, Quakers, and Friends, are members of the Religious Society of Friends. Yes, we are a sect, but we do not separate ourselves from the world around us. We believe that God is present in every person and that peace is preferable to war. We gather in silent communal worship to wait on the Spirit of God. Sometimes It moves us in other ways. We have no formal creed, no ritual, dogma, or liturgy. Instead, to help us follow Divine guidance we pose, both individually and corporately, searching queries; we strive to trust to love, rather than react to fear; we work towards peace because we believe it is the only way; we are led to implement our concerns for equal rights for all. Many of us have been drawn to this religion - Quakerism - because of its dual commitment to spiritual awareness and social action. These beliefs are not always easy to hold, nor to honor with action, but our search has led us to commit ourselves to them.
