Universal Christ Church

Universal Christ Church

The Universal Christ Church is a small fellowship of Spiritualist congregations in Southern California. It was founded in 1970 by Rev. Anthony Benik and was unique in its acceptance of an element of ritualism in its worship. It operates out of a Spiritualist perspective and reincarnation is accepted. Most of the churches are in the Los Angeles area, but there is one large congregation reported in Australia. In the 1970s there were five congregations in the greater Los Angeles area, but recent attempts to contact the church have failed. Its present status is unknown.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
