What is Unity?
In a nutshell, “Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual's right to choose a spiritual path.” (from the Unity website: www.unity.org)
Unity is part of what is called “New Thought Churches”, sister to the Center for Spiritual Living (formerly the Church of Religious Science) and cousin to the Unitarian Univeralist Church. Unity is not a part of the New Age movement, but many spiritual non-religious people are associated with it. Unity was founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in Kansas City, Missouri, as a healing prayer society. Unity is not a religion; it is a spiritual movement based in Christianity, but embracing the ideal of “Whoever you are, wherever you are on your spiritual path, you are welcome here.” We believe that all spiritual paths lead to one Power and one Presence in which all are united in one Purpose. We believe that God’s peace and good will extends to everyone, everywhere. It is our mission as a church to provide an environment where all who come may explore the universal principles of Truth that awaken all of us to the Unity expressed in each one of us.
Even though Unity did not start out as an organized movement, there are Unity churches in every state in the USA and in many countries worldwide. Unity has a school at Unity Village, MO which offers ministerial and teacher training programs and courses open to the general public as well. Courses are also offered at local churches and on-line. More information about classes can be found on our Events page or at http://www.unity.org.
Unity began as a prayer movement and for more than 100 years has held an unending prayer vigil called “Silent Unity.” Silent Unity is based at Unity Village and offers prayer assistance 24/7 by phone, mail or email. Prayer requests are prayed over for 30 days. Unity also publishes a bi-monthly magazine called “The Daily Word,” which has inspirational quotes and articles which can be used for daily prayer or meditation.
Unity Church of Peace is the local Unity affiliate. We offer Sunday Services at 10 am. There is also A Course in Miracles Study Group every Sunday and Meditation for Inner Harmony on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings. In addition, we offer Sacred Circles of Joy! on Sunday evenings and classes and special events monthly. See ourEvents page for more details.
