Five Basic Principles

We encourage you to explore and apply Unity teachings based on your own spiritual understanding. We believe this spiritual understanding is enhanced through reflective prayer and meditation. The five basic ideas that make up the Unity belief system are:

Principle One:  “God is Absolute Good, everywhere present.”

Principle Two:  “Human beings have a spark of divinity with them; the Christ spirit within.  Their very essence is of God, and Therefore, they are also inherently good.”

Principle Three:  “Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.  Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.”

Principle Four:  “Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind, and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing prosperity and everything good.”

Principle Five:  “Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.”
