CHURCHES, MISSIONS AND GROUPS
oday, Scientology is practiced in more than 125 countries. Its churches comprise a hierarchy which ministers services from the most basic to the most spiritually advanced, raising man out of his day-to-day problems and carrying him to never-before envisioned spiritual vistas.
The millions of people who have been introduced to the miracles of L. Ron Hubbards technology are a broad mixture of cultures, races and nationalities. Each day they are joined by thousands more to whom Scientology is brand-new.
A person discovering Scientology for the first time usually reads a book, learns about the subject from a friend, attends a lecture in someones home or takes an introductory course at a local mission. As it was in the early 1950s, news about the miracles of Dianetics and Scientology is still most often spread by personal contact and word of mouth.
