Unity Teachings

The Five Spiritual Teachings of Unity

  1. God is absolute good, everywhere present.
  2. Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good.
  3. Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.
  4. Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing prosperity and everything good.
  5. Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, is not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.

(from Keys to the Kingdom by Connie Fillmore)

What Unity teaches about YOU...

  • God intends that you be deeply satisfied, prosperous, and healthy.
  • God speaks directly to you from within yourself. We are all learning day by day to hear that voice more clearly.
  • True spirituality guides and enriches your life seven days a week, not just while you are in spiritual services.
  • Spiritual services and activities are intended to add to your joy and to provide comfort during times of healing. You should not leave with feelings of guilt or burden.
  • You are an acceptable person just as you are right now. When you feel a need to be forgiven, God's Love is yours for the asking.
  • Your own prayer, study, and work will be lovingly supported by the presence of loving, excited persons within our community.
