A Positive Path for Spiritual Living

The Unity Philosophy

Unity has a philosophy that is spiritual, but not religious. It is based on love, not fear. Unity honors our magnificent human diversity and all paths to God. We see God as good and everywhere present as we affirm the spark of divinity in each and every one of us. Unity offers a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Through our metaphysical interpretation of the Bible, we see Jesus as the great example, not the great exception. We are all God's beloved.

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. Unity Worldwide Ministries is headquartered at Unity Village in Lee's Summit, Missouri and 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 were ahead-of-their-time vegetarians who believed and applied the power of affirmative prayer, interpreted the Bible metaphysically, and taught that God is present within us all.
