PROVIDENCE FRIENDS MEETING
The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) is a community of faith based on experience of a transforming power named many ways: the Inner Light, the Spirit of Christ, the Guide, the Living God, and the Divine Presence. Friends (Quakers) have worshipped on this land since 1684. Members of our community come from different walks of life, and we appreciate and love the diversity of our Meeting. We come together in our faith and belief that we can have an inward, immediate experience of God.
Friends have no dogma or officially mandated doctrine. We believe that continuing revelation is available to everyone. However, we value certain principles known as testimonies. These include simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship (S.P.I.C.E.S). Friends try to embody and live up to these testimonies in all aspects of our lives.
