What is Unity? 

The Unity movement is a positive and progressive approach to Christianity.

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 teachings continue to evolve as we identify, embrace and apply spiritual insights and the spiritual implications of new discoveries.

Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects everyone’s individual right to choose a spiritual path. Unity seeks to apply the teachings of Jesus as well as other spiritual masters. We affirm the power of prayer and help people experience a stronger connection with God every day.In Unity, we feel a sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our churches, our communities and our world.

The Five Unity Principles

1. There is only One Power and One Presence in the Universe and in my life, God the Good, Omnipotent.  

2. We are Spiritual Beings created in God’s Image. The Spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.

3. We create our life experiences through our thoughts and feelings.

4. There is Divine Power in meditation and affirmative prayer which increases our awareness of our oneness with God.

5. Knowing and understanding these Spiritual Principles, also called Truth, is not enough. We must live them.

      History of Unity

The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in 1889 as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own reality.

Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, a Kansas City, Missouri, couple with three young boys, had suffered lifelong physical ailments and constantly sought healing. After attending a  lecture by a metaphysician named E.B. Weeks, Myrtle came away with a startling new idea: “I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness.”

In two years of prayer and meditation, she healed her body of tuberculosis. While once expected to die by the time she was forty, Myrtle live into her 80's. After her success, Charles also began to investigate spiritual principles and healed a leg that had been damaged in a childhood ice skating accident.

Over a 30 year period, Charles poured over The Bible asking himself, "What if there is something deeper here?"  Looking at The Bible as allegory, he was on a search for underlying meaning.  It took him 30+ years of studying   to write the  Metaphysical Bible Dictionary. 

The Fillmores,   hosted group meetings to teach people what they had been studying of  world religions, spiritual healing, and the link between science and religion. Unity became a movement because the people attending their  groups wanted to make it their primary Sunday teaching. Today, the movement continues with over  800 churches across the United States . 

Unity was founded with the intention that people might belong to other faiths and still be interested in the teachings of Unity and that those two things don’t have to be in conflict. Communication across religious lines is a corner stone of Unity as we believe people from all different faiths have something to learn from one another.
