Welcome to the Church of Humanism and its division, the Humanist Foundation. Founded in 1973, the Church of Humanism, located in New York City, is the only Humanist religious organization that affirms God as a fusion of naturalism and realism.
Our philosophy of life is based on a deep faith in the values of reason, love, and intuition and a call to conscience that relates particularly to issues of justice, freedom, and peace. We greatly value the study and the application of humanistic psychology and philosophy, and we take inspiration from the wisdom of Martin Buber, Erich Fromm, Hannah Arendt, Carl Rogers, Karen Horney, Stanley Krippner, Wilhelm Reich, and other pioneers in the field of human relations.
Our services and programs include regular dialogical and inspirational meetings, ethical counseling, weddings and other personal ceremonies, a Humanist Theological Seminary, and research in the philosophy of religion.
Here at our web site, you will find information about the unique philosophy and history of our Church, and we hope to greet you in person at one of our meetings.
In faith and hope,
Reverend Joseph Ben-David
Founder and Senior Minister…
