The Society of Friends are friends to all.
We call ourselves Friends; many people call us Quakers.
The Society of Friends is a worldwide group calling for a spiritual revolution and a return to the faith and lifestyle of the teachings of Jesus.
Friends have demonstrated a long-held commitment to putting their faith into direct action in the world.
We have continued to live our lives based on our basic principles rather than any written set of beliefs.
"You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession," the Apostle Peter wrote to a small group of Jesus' followers.
While Friends would never choose to use honorific titles, we believe that all who participate in God's Kingdom will serve in this priesthood, surrendering themselves to each other and to those that need help, to reclaim the calling that was promised to humanity.

I will take the time that I have left to live, and I'll give it all that I have left to give. I will live my days for my fellow men, and I'll live in praise, of that moment, when I was able to begin again.
