What is Unity?
Unity is a spiritual
organization with beliefs based on the teachings of Jesus the Christ. We offer an
"every-moment" approach to God, as Jesus taught. He told us God is always with
us, ready to meet our every need.
Unity believes in one
God who manifests in many ways-- as Jesus the Christ, Buddha, Krishna, and, yes, even
ourselves. God, Divine Mind, is the Source and Creator of all. God is omnipotent
(all-powerful) and omniscient (all-knowing). There is nowhere God is not and there is no
other enduring power.
Jesus was both fully
human and fully Divine. He is our "Way-shower;" our example of what is possible
when we live fully from Spirit. Knowing and understanding the truth of life is not enough.
A person must also live the truth that she or he knows to the level of their
Unity stresses seeing
the Divinity in others, as well as ourselves, and does not discriminate on any basis. We
are all one of Divine substance, and love is our expression of that Divinity. The
following "Prayer for Protection" written by Unity's James Dillet Freeman says
"The Light of God
The Love of God enfolds
The Power of God
and the Presence of God
watches over you,
Wherever you are, God
And all is well!"
