Inspired by the principles dictated by the religion's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, all Scientology churches are places of worship where believers can attain truth and spiritual salvation, and meeting places where people of all faiths, as well as non-believers, can come together to plan activities that will be of practical help to the community. Witnessing this is Ivan Arjona, European representative for Scientology who said that “for example, in other countries like Belgium, different Christian communities from Pakistan, and even an Orthodox Church, have been performing their religious services in Scientology premises”.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
