The Hubbard Guidance Center
The Hubbard Guidance Center is where Scientologists receive one-on-one spiritual counseling, known as auditing.
Auditing Room Just beyond the waiting room are dozens of auditing rooms, each one ideally appointed to provide the calm, distraction-free setting requisite to achieving spiritual enlightenment.
The Academy is where Scientologists train to become auditors (spiritual counselors), capable of applying the technology of auditing to help others attain spiritual freedom. The Buffalo Academy comprises one floor of our Church, with multiple course rooms, each devoted to a different aspect of training.
The Office of L. Ron Hubbard As is traditional in all Churches of Scientology, the Office of L. Ron Hubbard stands in honor of our Founder and symbolizes that this Church is true to his writings and ideals.
The History of an Allentown LandmarkThe Beaux Arts landmark that stands at the crossing of Main and Virginia Streets in the Allentown Historic District was originally constructed in 1898 as the Buffalo Catholic Institute Library.
It is with great pride we welcome you to our Church.
Since 1971, we have served a growing congregation in Buffalo. Today, we are honored to extend our help to communities across Upstate New York from our home in the Allentown Historic District.
Our Church realizes Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard’s vision that all Churches of Scientology become what he termed Ideal Organizations (Orgs). Ideal Orgs not only provide the ideal facilities for Scientologists on their ascent to higher states of spiritual freedom, but they also serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.
To that end, we share our Church and our many social betterment and community outreach programs with this city. Moreover, we look forward to collaborating with every group and individual committed to revitalizing Buffalo, in the same spirit that originally built
this City of Light. Together, we can achieve our common dream of a drug-free, crime-free and flourishing future for all.
