In a word, Scientology works.

And this is why millions of people the world over use its principles in their daily lives, why a growing number of people find such relevance in Scientology for themselves, their families, their organizations, their nations and this entire civilization.

You will learn about Scientology in this site, about its basic principles, its history, its organizations, what it is doing to improve life in a troubled world and about the remarkable man who researched and developed Scientology – American philosopher and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.

Fundamentally, Scientology is about the individual man or woman. Its goal is to bring an individual to a sufficient understanding of himself and his life and free him to make improvements where he finds them necessary and in the ways he sees fit.

Scientology is a workable system. Evidence of this may be seen in the lives of millions of Scientologists and the positive effects they create. People improve their lives through Scientology. As Scientologists in all walks of life will attest, they have enjoyed greater success in their relationships, family life, jobs and professions. They take an active, vital role in life and leading roles in their communities. And participation in Scientology brings to many a broader social consciousness, manifested through meaningful contribution to charitable and social reform activities. Through hundreds of separate community outreach programs, Scientologists help the needy and disadvantaged on every continent.

Scientology contains effective answers to society’s most crucial problems, among them drug abuse, crime, education and decay of moral values.
