Unity has a philosophy that is spiritual but not religious. It is based on love, not fear. Unity honors diversity and the many paths to God. We see God as good and everywhere present as we affirm the spark of Divinity in each of us. Unity also offers a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity, regarding Jesus as the great example rather than the great exception through a metaphysical interpretation of the Bible.
Unity is a positive path for spiritual living that provides practical teachings to help people live healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives by discovering and living their spiritual purpose and potential. The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in 1889 as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own experience of reality. The Fillmores regarded Jesus as the great example and way-shower rather than the great exception. They believed and applied the power of affirmative prayer, interpreted the Bible metaphysically, and taught that God is present within all of us. Unity Worldwide Ministries is headquartered at Unity Village in Missouri.

The balance of mind, body, and Spirit is essential to our well being.
We recognize the potential in each person. We experience the power of prayer.
We acknowledge the blessings we receive and the blessings we give.
We joyously play as we express and experience God.
We began as a meditation and study group in Hansville, Washington, in 1993. Our founding minister was Rosella Turner-Teal who guided us in 1995 into a little old house in Kingston which we remodeled to accommodate our fledgling church.
In September 2001 our first official by-laws were adopted and we incorporated with the state of Washington as North Peninsula Unity Center.
In 2010 we moved from Kingston and have had several temporary locations, along with a change of name to Unity of North Kitsap. And, now, after 4 years in Suquamish, we have a new home in Poulsbo where we gratefully share a church facility with Faith Episcopal church.
Unity of North Kitsap serves the towns of Suquamish, Kingston, Indianola, Hansville, Poulsbo, Port Ludlow, and Bainbridge Island, and other communities on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington.
