Unity’s Core Beliefs

Unity’s Core Beliefs

One Presence, One Power
There is only One Presence and One Power active as the universe and through my life: God, the Good, Omnipotence. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.

Originally Blessing
We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The essence of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good … we are ONE in GOD. This essence, called the Christ, was perfected in Jesus, a Master Teacher and Way-shower. The Christ Consciousness is ready and waiting to be expressed within each of us.

Mindful Co-creators
We are co-creators with God, manifesting our experience of reality through thoughts held in mind.

Prayer and Meditation
Through affirmative prayer and meditation we align our heart-mind with God.

Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them. Through thoughts, words, and actions, live the truth we know!

Unity a positive path for spiritual living

A Brief Description: What Is Unity?

“Unity is a link in the great educational movement inaugurated by Jesus Christ; our objective is to discern the truth in Christianity and prove it. The truth that we teach is not new; neither do we claim special revelations or discovery of new religious principles. Our purpose is to help and teach humanity to use and prove the Eternal Truth taught by the Master.”

—Charles Fillmore, Co-Founder of Unity


There is a perennial wisdom woven into the major systems of world faith. Mystics and prophets of diverse cultures share similar teachings of transcendence and oneness with the Divine.  The founders of the Unity movement, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, discovered a personal pathway of faith through the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Fillmores developed a metaphysical interpretation of the Bible and an affirmative method of prayer and meditation inspired by the teachings of Christ, a wellspring of transcendent meaning.  As the Fillmore’s perspective spread, others applied these Truth principles to their own lives and enjoyed the rewards of healing and spiritual education. One small study group grew into an international association of churches. During the last century Unity teachers and prayer centers have touched the lives of millions of people. Today Unity is a well developed yet still evolving spiritual philosophy; its uplifting system of belief continues to speak to the heart of essential life challenges.

In a time of increasing complexity, Unity offers a voice of peace and positive thought for the modern world. Unity beliefs are intended to support the practical application of sacred teachings into everyday lives. The Truth within all pathways of faith is honored and diversity celebrated by Unity ministers. Unity teachers nurture a sense of connection and oneness, co-creation and discovery. They gently support and empower spiritual beings on a physical journey through lessons of love and affirmation. Unity programs honor the natural process of spiritual unfoldment, the remembering of wholeness, in the students as well as in the teachers. Offering practical tools for daily living and metaphysical views of spiritual development, the Unity movement inspires transformation in consciousness and experience.
