What We Believe . . .

Who is Unity????
Expressing the Christ within us all.
We believe Jesus expressed his Divine potential and sought to show humankind how to express our Divinity. We see Jesus as a Master Teacher of Universal Truths and a Way Shower to be the Love or Christ- Consciousness. In Unity, Christ means the divinity within and is available to all. Jesus is our great example of the Christ and the essence of Love in physical expression.
The Nature of Humankind

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 emphasizes the creative power of thought in our life experience. We refer to this as the Law of Mind Action.  (Also known as the law of attraction) 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, and we embrace the many paths to our individual divinity.
