The Church of Scientology is an international religious oranization. It has churches and missions in most of the countries of the world. Its growth begin when it was established, in 1954. The founder of the Church of Scientology was L. Ron Hubbard who wrote its doctrine [1] and methods of organization.

The Church's effort today is the aim Hubbard announced in the 1950's. A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology. [2]

Selling its scripture and organizational policy is one of the Church's sources of income. In recent years its volunteer ministers have provided assistance at national and international disaster scenes.
