Bringing New Understandings of Universal Spirit to Earth in the 21st Century !
A church where the people are more important than the building or heiarchy ... Promoting the Joy and Love of Life without dogma or creeds!
"I have said, 'Ye are ‘gods’ (Made in His image) and all of you are sons and daughters of the Most High.” Psalm 82:6
Our 2011 Ministers: Rev. John K, Rev. Debby and Rev. Martine
WELCOME TO THE HOME OF UNORTHODOX SPIRITUALISM
The Mystical Spiritualist Church was founded in California in 2001. Our church activities then transitioned to Arizona in 2006-2007 with 2 of the churches founders, Revs. John and Martine Kohlenberger, forming the new Arizona base.
In 2012, Rev. Debby Taylor was ordained, thus expanding our ministerial staff, with Rev. Beryl Van Pelt as an assistant minister.
We continue to expand, even as some of our ministers and supporters transition to other ventures including returning to the Light of Creation.
What is an Unorthodox Church? Orthodox refers to the claim by Constantine's biographer, Eusibius, that since the Roman Catholic Church had the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, they had the true (ortho) documents (dox) written by the disciples of Jesus. However, we now know that those books were first written 10 to 60 years after Jesus walked the shores of Galilee, after many disciples were either feeble or dead. As the writers of these books never told us who they were we don't know who wrote these books. Thus, there is no true "Orthodox" church! All we have ever had are later copies from hundreds of years later, no original documents. But, choosing these names for the first four gospels of the New Testament was thought to be valid, once upon a time. "Traditional" would be a better term instead of "Orthodox". Thus, we honor several sacred books,of wisdom, even of other religions. What we honor most, however, is that "Still small voice" in our hearts and the soul of Life, Light, Love and Inspiration.
Our 2019 Ministerial staff: Revvy Debby, Rev. Beryl, Rev. John-Aaron, Rev. DeeDee and Rev. John K
OUR CORE PHILOSOPHY:
(from our hearts)
Though we can't always teach people a thing,
we can always love them!
When you find that your Dogma is chasing your Carma ... or Karma, and you still have your Karma, even a Creed won't help!
Because, what really matters is not the dogma, karma, creeds or catma! What matters most is What is In Your Heart, the Love that You Are ... not what is printed in that old dusty book!
So we are a church of the heart, not the book, of those who are attracted by love and not about the building or any other structure!
Life is constantly moving, but when the movement appears to stop, we call it "dead"!
We, in this church, believe in personal experience and revealed wisdom. The quote above indicates that despite being taught that we each exist separately, we are never alone. There is no separation between the realms of spirit and our material world or other dimensions, except what we imagine. Humanity is ever and always a part of All-That-Is, and thus never has been apart from God-Goddess. Thus, the only way we can “fall” from God is in our awareness and/or belief. After all, to exist we must be a part of All-That-Is which is just one more description of "God".
This was a tenet of Jesus who became the Christ and the early followers and believers in the early churches, before Constantine tried to organize it into hierarchies with one person greater than another. God loves us all, no matter what; who, where or how we are! You can even find this idea of each person contributing their uniqueness for the benefit of the community in a few of Paul's later teachings, right along with his approval of women as leaders in the churches. We follow these ideals.
We do not need to justify the truth of a statement or a belief by citing its source, like the Bible or Torah or Quran. If it is true for us, then it is true. Whatever is loving and true in your heart is your truth, even if it is no one else's truth. So, if someone else does not embrace yours, then they have their truth and they are entitled to it, just as you are entitled to yours. What you know in your heart is, in other words, your truth regardless of anybody else's belief. This is between you and Creator, ONLY!
In this church, we are inspired by our hearts and inner truths, rather than following the words of some old book, dead saint, teacher or Guru from a foreign land.
As you find your inner truths, from your heart and soul, you will perceive the whole world as changing or changed, and your choices will also change. This will be Your New Jerusalem!
The two constants in our worlds are Love and Change! That's what LIFE IS ... and it is from this inner light that we find our FREEDOMS!
Representing Unconditional Love, Lifgt, Life, Inspiration and Truths
If you're looking for a spiritually oriented church with minimum doctrine and dogma, this just may be it! We have no doctors on our staff, so we can't teach a doctrine, either orthodox or "false". To many, attending our functions is like a breath of fresh air!
This and all other churches really need to be about its people, not the building and not the budget. Thus we rent space here and there, around the community so at some point each month, are "near you" so you don't have to go far for your inspiration and/or healing.
Heaven, by the way, is both within and all around you, so it truly doesn't matter where, when or how you commune with the divine, as you realize that you are never separate, disconnected, lost or disowned by God. Thus, there are not, and cannot be, any lost souls.
For more information about this claim, see Gospel of Thomas #3
THE LOVE OF CREATION BY CREATOR IS THE ONLY TRUTH!
"God so loves the world that He/She/They/It gave us each other to love and be loved by,
for Life is Love Lived; to the best of each of our own personal response abilities!"
- John 3:16 PM, on 12 March 2010

God-Goddess and All-That-Is is LOVE!
Of all the words the self-appointed Apostle Paul said, these were his best:
"... and the greatest of these is love"
- 1 Corinthians 13
CELEBRATING THE NEW AGE OF AWARENESS
"Suffering is not needed to promote spiritual growth. There are other ways of becoming aware of Who You Truely Are, but you have become used to suffering in earth. We are on the verge of a collective change, and there will be different ways of learning for humankind".
- from "Your Soul's Gift", by Robert Schwartz (p 345)
This church and the people attracted to it come to attune to and reveal many of the mysteries that have been hidden in some of the many spiritual realities.
I am helping you as your brother; through the life you chose. We are all sons and daughters of the Source of ALL Creativity.
NOTE: Long before the following words were put to paper, the leaders of this church felt the following to be their truth.
And then Jeshua said:
"Please accept me as your brother. I am close to you, never above you, but next to your heart. You are beautiful as you are, but your heart has been closed to some extent to your beauty, your integrity, your kindness. You have withheld appreciation for yourself.
The above is quoted from: "Your Soul's Gift, the healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born", by Robert Schwartz, 2012 (p340)
Thank You Robert for so clearly letting the world know about "The First Adam" or "The Son of Man" and what those words have meant throughouit the ancient historiers of what we now know as The Abrahamic religions!
Know that you are loved, absolutely, wholly, completely and unconditionally
... no matter what!
GOD IS LOVE & LOVE IS GOD!
GOD IS LIFE & LIFE IS GOD!
"There is nothing you can do 'wrong' ... (for) you are loved deeply and dearly" - Dr. Eben Alexander
Raising our vibrations and Spiritual Energies for 2012 & Beyond ...
with the vibrant inspired energy channeled by our spiritually inspired, and inspiring, staff!
In October 2011, we ordained a new spiritual leader in this church, expanding our energy resources, as she channeling the Angelic Realm, to add new inspiration for those who come to our services and functions.
With the help and support of our Board, who's function is to aid in the smooth running of our day to day operations, we have moved through 2012 as the new energies and new age for greater understandings come upon humanity with new vigor.
Spirit and energy love to move, so even more changes have come, including one of our founding ministers moving on to her Next Grandest Adventures, beyoun earth, body and mind, and several other female Reverends coming in to fill in for her.
Meet our ministers - Click this image to find out about how to simplify Christianity.
Our Board and ministers are committed to help resolve and bring order out of confusion, as more people join the spiritual revolution, or world wide revolution of souls in this speeding up of time, called the quickening, so that more people may become aware of their divinely inspired place upon their own soul's path.
Thus we are opening minds and ways to find inner guidance in order to provide teachers, mediators and helpers to assist these souls, young and old, to find the place of where they need to be, in these coming times of storm, before the calm.
Meet our ministers. The picture above shows of our ministers, Reverends John Kohlenberger and Rev. Debby Taylor.

The "present" is a gift for us to use as best we see fit and our "presence" is our gift, of love, to give to others.
You are, I am, We are Source ... having a human experience. Why not love and enjoy it all?
We are each a portion of Spirit, self actualizing ... as Creation contuinues.
First you are the light and then you are a delight ... to be alive!
The ways of God and Spirit are so magnificently beautiful, if we just trust that everything is unfolding beautifully and perfectly in our lives at all times. Remember, perfection is ever and always a moving target.
The religions that have told us that there is a "One and Only Way", to believe or live, have put the emphasis in the wrong place, for each of us needs our One End, Own Leway ... to find our own way through our individually God-given (and approved) life, only to discover that each ending is a new beginning and thus there is no end to Our Everlasting Life of many existances, where each existence is a Heaven (or a Hell) of Our Own Making!
The "destination", then, is to find that Heaven and that Unity with our own self ... our Loving Source! It is only then that we discover that, this Infinite Love offers Many Paths to get to that awareness!
The Vibrations of The Living Spirit exist within All that is ... they are alive within you, now! In Nature and all natural processes, nothing lies beyond the realms of any possibility coming into reality. Thus, the only thing that limits us from realizing our limitless possibilities is our belief that they are beyond us! So, we are limited by our own denials!
"All that I do, ye may do also, and even greater works, for I go unto the Father" - Jesus who became The Christ

We are a non-profit church dedicated to helping you find and develop your own spiritual attunement and empowerment through learning about and practicing your personal response abilities.
We encourage all persons visiting this page, or coming to our services or functions, to commune within as well as with all life forms, with love and respect, for all are unique manifestations of God-Goddess, just as you are! Yes, all of earth, our possessions and even our bodies are made of simple variations of the same stardust, brought together by dynamic and divine processes conceived and energized by unseen "spirit" energies. And, your soul is no stranger to other realms in other moments in time, either. Thus it is that the All, even in its many parts, is One and the One is also the All-That-Is. Beyond that, all divisions are artificial and temporary. Thus, the theme of this website is, "Love one another."
This is our expanded 2011 Logo

Where ever you are on your spiritual journey, you are at the right place for now and you are welcome here! You have been drawn to and just found this website because it offers a Complimentary, Alternative, Holistic, Transcendental, Universal and even Gnostic Christian along with some Eastern and Middle Eastern views of life, light and love mixed in with the spiritualist belief in our human ability for spirit communication as a result of our in-born communion with spirit or All-That-Is. This view is all about cleansing and opening your attitudes, beliefs and concepts (the "A,B, Cs of Life") to support and increase the health of your Heart, Soul, Mind and Body! This website offers a virtual church for your heart ... the one that you can carry within you at all times. Thus, you may refer to this website, and listen to your own heart, any time and anywhere in the world by tuning in here and then turning within for your personal answers.
Spirituality is very unorthodox, as each person's spirituality, as inspired by Source-Creator, comes from their own heart and each heart is a unique manifestation of creative energy and Creator. So it is that we have no people or things to worship or a physical edifice to support 24/7/365. None the less, like your guardian angels, we are here for you, always ... as is also your God-Goddess and All-That-Is!
"There are no Human attributes on the other side of the veil, save one - the love that you know is real, for it is also powerful on earth. However there are several things that pass through the veil (that you can take with you) untouched. They are (all attuned to the Feelings of Beauty that we find in) love, music, art, creativity and the desire for home." - Kryon (Book 12)
As the living spirit is so alive that it is ever changing, growing and becoming something greater than it was, we have become an unorthodox church that it is truly, not bound by the rules, laws, dogmas out traditions of any orthodoxy. Of course, to be in a physical world, we need some structure, but we try to keep it to a minimum.
Thus, when we gather to meet face to face for inspiration, healing, classes, workshops, gatherings, solstices, equinoxes or other celebrations of life's changes and energy increases, we may not look exactly like a "normal" Church, for we honor all spirit and all life in every form, including Father God, Mother Nature and even our Human Natures.
And so it is that as spirit has no borders, barriers or boundaries and no limits, our dream is to allow this church to be as close to that model as physically possible. However, we do maintain a meeting place for like minded hearts, minds and souls with harmonic sympathetic vibrations, while all of our individuation of spirit (souls) are in physical bodies. Then at times, it may seem, to logical minds, that we are a bit disorganized or unorthodox. If you sense this, lighten up a little, have more fun and "judge not ...", enjoy your journey so you may become more aware of the love and light that YOU ARE and you may thus share and shine with us and the world as you experience all this glory in life, without extinguishing your love light, nor diminishing any others.
Are you looking for a new way to live healthier, happier and feel whole again?
Maybe a church that is more spiritual with less religious, a little more unconventional, with an alternative approach would be more complimentary to your life. Our transcendental, yet holistic, message may also be what you have been looking for. Thus, we welcome anybody from any denomination or faith, even if you come from none at all. We have no doctrine or dogma to get between you and the Living Spirit Within you ... that also surrounds you. So we welcome you, all. This website represents a Holy Communion, open to ... who ever shall partake!
We are also not out to convince you of or sell you anything, so you may come, relax, release your fears and frustrations so you may rejuvenate your connection with what motivates you, as a child of The Most High (God-Goddess). This may just be a great Spiritual Home (page) for you to come back to for refreshment, relaxation, recuperation and rebuilding your life of love. As life is constantly giving and receiving, "Life is Love Lived" spiritually speaking. Of course beyond that, you may make your life anything you wish, for it all comes from Boundless Love!
As this church takes its heratige from the East Indian Traditions, Taoist and ShintoTraditions of the Orient, the Gnostic and Coptic Christian Traditions of Egypt, even the Celtic traditions of old Europe, as merged with the Spiritualists, Unitarians and Transcendentalists in this country, we are moving forward with the freedom of flight that exists within our souls, and yours, beyond the old binding traditions of domination by limited texts, dogmas, hierarchies and other religious structures that are found in most churches that come from the Greco-Roman line. The MysticalSpiritualistChurch believes in a Loving God-Goddess that lovingly encourages and allows Everlasting Life, Light and Love for the progression of our souls' evolution, with no eternal damnation.And as the Living Spirit is the All in all, we believe that "God is alive and hiding in each one of us". Thus we have each chosen, through our God-given Free Will, to explore what it is to be a Special Outpouring of Unbounded Love (SOUL), to the best of our personal abilities. This earthly experience is but a step along the way of becoming more and more loving and understanding of All-That-Is. Our mission is to become loving for all of life, all of which is just portions of God, anyway.
What motivates us? ... in a nut shell The Mystical Spiritualist Church brings a renewed sense of Spirituality for the 21st Century. This website is powered by the Living Spirit which is always recreating and renewing itself. Thus, many of our webpages are changing, some constantly ... just like the universe. "The greatest constant in the universe is change." - Rev. John's father, Dr. C.F.W. Kohlenberger, 1949
LET THERE BE LIGHT!
NOTE: In order for spiritual people of like mind and heart to come together in communion, to share their experiences and for council, we do meet mlore than once a month for an Inspirational Service, a Healing Service, Spirirualist Circles and other events in a rented facility. We also have other gatherings that, if you are interested, you may find out about on this website. Jesus who has been labeled the "Christos" by Greek scholars and "Krishna" in India was and still is the Master of Love, our example, teacher and brother. He did not come to become our savior, even though he knew that his message of love could improve and "save" our world which would also save us from much judgment, fear, anger, hatred and heart ache. That was the "saving grace" that Jesus left for us to find in our own hearts, then use and apply. God-Goddess, in infinite love has given us a Jesus, Mohammed, Mosses, Buddha, Pythagoras, Lao Tse, Zoroaster, Confucius, Teotihuacan, and many other Messengers, Masters, Teachers, Saints and Spirit Guides, plus our own Angels and their many assistants, along with our very own loved ones, some living on the earth with us and some unseen, to help us find our way toward the light on this earthly journey to our hearts. So, it is that we are assured that God, Jesus, Mother Mary, the Saints and your loved ones, even those "dearly departed", all love us so much that none of us are or will ever be truly alone or lost "forever", even when it may appear that way to the physical eye. You are in exactly the right place right now, so you can begin to open your heart to All-That-IS, which is Light, Life, Love, Inspiration, Truth, Beauty, God and all tghings, including those mentioned above.
The Living Spirit of the Universe Loves You, Absolutely, no matter what! ... And so do we!
