What is Unity?

The five principles of our Unity Church:

1. God is good

God is absolute good and everywhere present.

Only One Power and One Presence are active in the universe and in my life, God, the Good, Omnipotent.

God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.

2. People are good

Since humans are made in the image of God, they have a spark of divinity within them and therefore are inherently good.

Our essence is of God; therefore, we are inherently good. This God essence was fully expressed in Jesus as the Christ.

The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.

3. Thoughts create experiences

Human beings create their experiences through the activity of their thinking. Everything in the world was first created in the realm of thought.

We change our life experiences by changing the way we think.

4. Prayer is our connection

Prayer is the creative activity that heightens our experience of God and brings forth a greater life.

Through affirmative prayer and meditation, we connect with the power of God within us and bring forth a life filled with blessings.

5. Action is needed

Knowing and understanding the laws of life—also called truth—is not enough. A person must live the truth that he or she knows.

Through thoughts, words and actions, we live in the truth we know.

Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
