What Is Unity?

 

Unity is a worldwide Christian organization with an extremely positive approach to life, seeking to accept the good in people and in all life. God is seen as having many attributes, but the most important is LOVE. Unity stresses that God is not a physical man in the sky, for that limits our understanding. God is Spirit, everywhere present, the one and only Spirit behind, in, and through all things, visible and invisible.

 Unity denies the existence of any power or presence opposed to God. It sees that there are evil appearances and suffering in the world, but attributes these to man's ignorance and erroneous use of God's law of life.

 Unity explains that the mind is our connecting link with God, or Divine Mind, and shows how the action of our mind affects our body and circumstances. Much emphasis is placed on the effective power that thoughts, feelings, words and acts have upon our life.

 Prayer is not seen as a technique for changing God, but for expanding and transforming our minds, and thus changing us.

 Unity seeks to relate religion to daily needs, affirming that for every need there is God's perfect answer. Its main textbook is The bible and it relates its lessons to your life and everyday experiences.

 Unity does break from tradition in that it has no creedal requirements, dogma, rituals, or ecclesiastical garb. Unity chooses to believe that there is good in every religion. Different religions are like spokes on a wheel with the hub being God. They may be set apart by variances of beliefs and approaches, but they are all seeking the one God as the hub of all life. Consequently, Unity does not deny anyone the right to have his/her own beliefs.

 Unity sees worship as serving God by uplifting and glorifying God's spirit in man, in positive, joyous ways. It seeks not to emphasize one's sins of the past, but instead gives attention to the good that exists in every person and what can be done with the now to transform one's self and life.

 Unity does not impose any financial burdens or pressure on its adherents. It believes the desire for giving should be initiated from within the giver. Consequently, all support is by free will offerings.

 Unity is interdenominational and welcomes in dignity and love, people of all races, colors, religions, social backgrounds, and economic levels.

Because of similarity in names, Unity has on occasion been confused with other organizations. However, there is no connection between Unity and Unitarianism or the Unification Church.

In summation, Unity emphasizes the divine potential within every child of God and teaches that through a practical understanding and application of what Jesus taught every person can realize and express his/her divine potential for a happier, fuller and more successful life.


A UNITY POINT OF VIEW

NATURE OF GOD

God is not a person that is somewhere. God is Spirit that is everywhere present and only good. God expresses as the life, love, intelligence and power which permeates all creation.

NATURE OF MAN/WOMAN

These are three aspects to the nature of man/woman. We are spirit (our Divine Christ identity), soul (the sum of our thoughts and feelings), and body (the physical expression of our souls). 

JESUS CHRIST

In Unity, Jesus is recognized as our Way shower. He understood His own divine nature, which is the Christ, and He provides for us the true example of how each human being is capable of becoming more Christlike.

MEDITATION AND PRAYER

Meditation is the process of listening to the "still small voice" of God within us. Prayer is the process of aligning our daily thoughts and attitudes with the positive revelations that come in our quiet times of meditation.

THE BIBLE

The Bible was written over an extremely long period of time, by different authors who were expressing various degrees of spiritual understanding. Although the writings were, no doubt, divinely inspired, they were not written with the intention that they would become sacred scriptures; the authors were influenced by the cultural circumstances and needs of the times. Clearly this collection of writings reveals the unfolding nature of man's understanding of God. Embodied in the Bible are universal principles which can provide inspiration and guidance of the inner Spirit of Truth, which Jesus said "will teach you all things." (John: 14:26) In Unity, we do not interpret the Bible literally; instead we study the deeper meanings and messages that can be found in these historical writings, and we look for ways that these meanings can be applied to our daily lives. 

HEAVEN

Jesus taught that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us (Luke 17:21). Heaven is an experience which is immediately available to us whenever we align our souls (thoughts and feelings) with the awareness of our divine inner nature and our oneness with God.

HELL

Hell, like heaven, is an experience that is always "available" to us. When we allow circumstances or appearances to interrupt our awareness of our oneness with God, then our lives begin to reflect a sense of separation. Hell is the experience of "not-at-one" with God.

SIN AND EVIL

Sin can be best understood as error thinking. Any thought that does not reflect our oneness with God or the divine nature of man/woman is an error thought. Error thinking can lead to conditions of lack or limitation in our lives, such as sickness or poverty. These "evils" (limiting conditions) can be erased from our lives through correct thinking.

Center for Spiritual Living  - What We Believe

We believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause.  This One manifests itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by Its Creation.  The manifest Universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite
self-knowingness of God...

We believe in the incarnation of the Spirit of Everyone and that all people
are incarnations of the One Spirit.

We believe in the eternality, immortality, and continuity of the individual
soul, forever and ever expanding...

We believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is within each of us and that we
experience this Heaven to the degree that we become conscious of it.

We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all
discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all...

We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and innermost
God is one God.  We believe that God is personal to all who feel this
indwelling Presence.

We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through the intuitive and
spiritual nature of the individual, and that any person who lives in close
contact with the Indwelling God may become a revealer of Truth.

We believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a
Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought, and acts upon it...

We believe in the healing of the sick through the power of this Mind...We
believe in the control of conditions through the power of this Mind...We
believe in the eternal Loving-kindness, and the eternal Givingness of Life
to all...  We believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our own destiny,
for we understand that the life of man is God.
