The Affiliated New Thought Network (ANTN) was founded by independent Religious Science ministers who envisioned a spiritual community that would provide heart-centered connection, support and networking for independent Religious Science ministries. They also envisioned a community in which Consciousness was the sole authority. The Affiliated New Thought Network has empowered Spirit-led, vision-driven, independent ministries and metaphysical churches of all sizes since 1992. ANTN represents diverse spiritual communities and unique ministries serving worldwide. ANTN believes Divine Consciousness is the sole authority. Since its inception, ANTN has evolved to include not only independent Religious Science ministries, but all New Thought ministries who desire to be a part of such a spiritual community.
