Become a Fellowship Member
The community of Urantia Book readers is diverse, comprised of individuals who span the spectrum of beliefs, nationalities, and circumstances and are fortunate enough to have found a revelation.
The Fellowship is a social organization of Urantia Book readers. Our history began with the first publication of the revelation in 1955 and our future will, hopefully, witness the next age of planetary progress. Take this incredible journey with us as coworkers and supporters of the Urantia Revelation.
