Affirmative Prayer Line:
We encourage you to explore and apply Unity teachings based on your own spiritual understanding.
We believe this spiritual understanding is enhanced through reflective prayer and meditation.
The five basic ideas that make up the Unity belief system are:
♥ God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.
♥ We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.
♥ We create our life experiences through our way of thinking.
♥ There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God.
♥ Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
Unity provides practical teachings to help people live healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives.
♥ We believe that prayer works.
♥ We help people discover and live their spiritual purpose and potential.
♥ We help people have a stronger connection to God every day.
♥ Our spiritual communities have inspiring ministers and are involved in spiritual social action (and social activities).
God is Spirit, the loving source of all that is. God is the one power, all good, everywhere present, all wisdom. God is divine energy, continually creating, expressing and sustaining all creation. In God, we live and move and have our being. In Unity, some other ways we speak of God are Life, Light, Love, Substance, Principle, Law, and Universal Mind.
We believe that Jesus expressed his divine potential and sought to show humankind how to express ours as well. We see Jesus as a master teacher of universal truths and as our Way-Shower. In Unity, we use the term "Christ" to mean the divinity in humankind. Jesus is the great example of the Christ in expression.
We are each individual, eternal expressions of God. Our essential nature is divine and therefore inherently good. Our purpose is to express our divine potential as realized and demonstrated by Jesus and other master teachers. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses in and through our lives.
Unity co-founders, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, studied the Bible as history and allegory, and interpreted it as a metaphysical representation of humankind's evolutionary journey toward spiritual awakening. In addition, Unity recognizes that the Bible is a complex collection of writings compiled over many centuries. We honor the writings as reflecting the understanding and inspiration of the writers at the time they were written. The Bible continues to be a valuable spiritual resource for us.
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 emphasizes the importance of applying spiritual principles in our daily lives.
Unity teachings continue to evolve as we identify, embrace and apply spiritual insights and the spiritual implications of new discoveries.
Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.
Unity recognizes that there are many expressions of family life. All are welcome. Unity creates an affirming environment that fosters positive self image, personal responsibility and unconditional love and acceptance.
• Beholds all children as whole and perfect expressions of God
• Empowers children to fulfill their divine potential
• Teaches children to meditate and pray
• Invites children to experience a loving God
Unity provides a strong spiritual foundation for children's lives.
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.
