What is Unity?
Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to spirituality. We honor the universal truths in all religions and respect each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.
God is Spirit, the loving source of all that is. God is the one power, all good, everywhere present, all wisdom. God is divine energy, continually creating, expressing and sustaining all creation. In Unity, some other ways we speak of God are Life, Light, Love, One Reality, Substance, Principle, and Universal Mind.
The Nature of Humankind
We are each individual, eternal expressions of God. Our essential nature is divine and therefore inherently good. Our purpose is to awaken to and to express our divine potential as realized and demonstrated by spiritual masters throughout time. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses in and through our lives.
Unity teaches that each person is a unique expression of God created with sacred worth. Living from that awareness transforms our lives and the world.
Unity emphasizes the creative power of thought in our life experience. We refer to this as the Law of Mind Action. When we take personal responsibility to choose life-affirming thoughts, words and actions, we experience a more fulfilling and abundant life.
Unity emphasizes the importance of applying spiritual principles in our daily lives, and our teachings continue to evolve as we identify, embrace and apply spiritual insights and the spiritual implications of new discoveries.
Prayer and Meditation
Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.
We provide a loving and accepting environment that inspires personal and spiritual growth through the practice of spiritual principles in our daily lives.
