The New Civilization Church or Church and School of the New Civilization was founded by Julia Sears in 1905 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Other congregations were started in Manhattan and Brooklyn; London, England; Cleveland; Buffalo; Chicago; Denver; and in California.[1]

Mission[edit]

The central mission of the New Civilization Church was, "It is the deep of supply answering to the deep of need. It will remain because mankind can use it as sane, sensible, spiritual substance, with which he can pass his life into higher manifestation of health, wealth, love, service and worship. This church believes in all churches, all creeds and all people, without regard to class, creed or color, Anyone can come into the new church and learn its fundamentals and principles and return to his own church, his own country, his own class, his own people and better fulfill his life's destiny."[2]

Dr. Seton was elected fourth vice-president for the League for the Larger Life.
