Unity is a faith that honors all pathways to God. Unity is a safe place to explore all your spiritual and existential questions about Life. We welcome everyOne. If you
are in a same sex relationship or are rich or poor, old or young—we behold the Christ in you and see the best in you. Unity leaves no one out. We include all people and the living Earth in
our circle of light and love.
Unity is not a new religion. Unity is an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ with the primary emphasis on practice. The core practices in Unity are Affirmative Prayer and Silent Meditation. Unity in the deepest sense of the word is union with God, Self-Realization, Oneness. Unity gives us a collection of techniques in enlightened living that include thoughts to think, words to speak, healing treatments, creative visualizations and positive, uplifting daily practices.
Unity calls us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, all the Saints, Siddhas and Buddhas—to become Unified, Integrated, Whole, Holy and Complete-- in every way. Jesus said, “Follow me” and we take him at his word. “I have come so that you can feel Joy and my Joy may be in you and your joy may be full.”
We hope that you join us in this adventure called Unity!
