Quakers share

a way of life rather

than a set of beliefs

Quakers share a way of life, rather than a set of beliefs. We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. These direct encounters with the divine (however defined) are where Quakers find meaning and purpose. Quaker faith is a search for truth, not an arrival.
