Description

Unity is a positive, practical, progressive spiritual community. We enjoy exploring teachings from Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism and more. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual's right to choose a spiritual path.


We believe and practice the following:
- God is absolute good, everywhere present.
- Human beings have a spark of divinity within them. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are inherently good.
- Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
- Prayer and Meditation are forms of creative thinking that heighten our connection with God.
- Knowing and understanding these principles are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.
