Mission Statement

The Mission of the Bryn Athyn Church as a congregation of the General Church of the New Jerusalem. The General Church of the New Jerusalem exists to promote the worship of the Lord as He is revealed in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, to propagate throughout the world the truths of these Writings for the New Church, and to promote through worship, instruction and mutual support the faith of the New Church and a life of charity in accordance with it. (Statement of the Order and Organization of the General Church of the New Jerusalem)

Description

The Bryn Athyn Cathedral is situated on a hill overlooking the picturesque Pennypack Creek Valley in the borough of Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Since its dedication in 1919, it has been the central place of worship for the Bryn Athyn Church and a gathering place for members of the New Church throughout the world.

The main construction of the Cathedral took place between the years 1913 and 1928 with work on the stained glass windows and interior decoration continuing into the early 1940s and beyond. The main Cathedral building is Gothic, while the northern and southern buildings are in the early Romanesque style. The symbolic plan is based on the teachings of the New Church.
