The Gnostic Catholic Apostolic Church, known as
l'Eglise Gnostique Catholique Apostolique (EGCA) and
l'Eglise Gnostique Apostolique (EGA), is the French Gnostic Church, the first Gnostic Church in modern times, established in 1890 by Jules Doinel in Paris.
"The Gnostic Church has for its essential goal the restoration of primitive religious unity to humanity, that is, of making him aware of the errors within various religions and the establishment of a religion that is compliant to the universal tradition and thereby truly 'catholic.'
"Based on the one hand, on the universal tradition (of all civilized people) and not only on the Hebrew tradition of the Bible, and on the other hand on philosophy and modern science, its truth does not present itself as faith, but as things that are demonstrable as in philosophy and science, and addresses Reason, which is the same in all men.
