Quaker history is rooted in the turbulent, anti-establishment times of the English Protestant Reformation. Early Friends were revolutionary Christians who believed that each person can have direct communion with God rather than through an intermediary. Thus, everyone is equal. The implications of these ideas remain far-reaching.
21st century Quakers bring insights from many different faiths, traditions, and experiences. Friends have no single statement of religious doctrine and do not have a fixed creed or theology. Each Meeting within the Religious Society of Friends is guided by Testimonies, Advices and Queries, Faith and Practice, and other writings that are updated periodically.
