New Here?

Our Vision 

We recognize the divinity within ourselves and in all beings; together we inspire and co-create a world that works for all.

What is Unity?

Unity is for people who might call themselves spiritual but not religious. It is for those who sense the depths of their own being and celebrate the awareness of a power greater than themselves.

The teachings in Unity bring together ancient wisdom with new interpretations of what it means to be alive and human. Unity inspires different ways to think about the force of love and intelligence that many people call God.

Some of what you’ll find in Unity might sound familiar and other parts brand-new. Although the principles of healing and prosperity taught in Unity have now been scientifically explained, the ideas must have seemed radical when they were put forth by founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore beginning in the 1880s.

What Are Unity Teachings?

Unity has no dogma. The Fillmores were reluctant even to issue a statement of beliefs. They wanted to remain in constant exploration.

Throughout the years, they pulled together teachings of Truth that flow through all the world’s great religions. Later, leaders of Unity boiled them down to five basic principles.

The Five Principles

  • God is all there is and present everywhere. This is the force of love and wisdom that underlies all of existence.
  • Human beings are divine at their core and therefore inherently good.
  • Thoughts have the creative power to determine events and attract experiences.
  • Prayer and meditation keep us aligned with the one great power in the universe.
  • It is not enough to understand spiritual teachings. We must live the Truth we know.
