What does Unity teach?

Unity offers practical, spiritual teachings that empower abundant and meaningful living.

Unity is a worldwide Christian movement 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. We see 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.

Millions of people have been introduced to Unity through its periodical Daily Word, published at Unity World Headquarters in Lee's Summit, MO. Millions of others are familiar with Unity through its prayer ministry, known as Silent Unity which has maintained a round-the-clock vigilance of prayer for more than 80 years via a toll free number (800-669-7729).

Five Basic Unity Principles

These five principle constitute core teachings of the Unity spiritual movement and reflect the laws of the universe that apply to everyone, all the time.  They show up in every major religion, and are all reflected in the teachings of Jesus Christ:

1. God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.

2. I am naturally good because God Divinity is in me and in everyone.

3. I create my experience by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.

4. Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.

5. I do and give my best by living the Truth I know.  I make a difference.
