The Church of All Worlds becomes the first pagan church to be incorporated in the United States and obtain full legal recognition as a religious organization. The Church of All Worlds is a neo-pagan group created in 1962 by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart.

The religion is typically classified as paganism, but it's not an orthodoxy-base system. There's no set of beliefs which members are expected to adhere to; instead it's an experiential-based religion in which members are expected to respect each other's different beliefs and interpretations of their experiences.
