We Welcome All
Our spiritual community – just like you- is in on an ongoing journey and path as we deepen collectively our connection to God- our Creator.
We are an inclusive, spiritual community established in St Petersburg, FL in 1924 who are dedicated to honoring the magnificence of God’s creation inherent in everyone.
As a member of the Unity Worldwide Ministries and affiliated with Unity, publishers of Daily Word© and host of Unity.fm, we teach a positive message that supports each man, woman, and child on his or her own unique path to understanding the power and presence of God active in the world. Rather than focusing on what divides people, we affirm the common ground that unites us all in one human family. We find our unity in our shared experiences – most notably the need to love and be loved. In all that we do, we strive to follow the words and the walk of our Way-Shower Jesus the Christ who said, “Love one another.”
Unity has many teachings, all of which are taught with the understanding to take what is right for you and leave the rest. We have no creeds or doctrines to which members must ascribe because only the living Spirit of Truth within the individual can identify what is true for them.
“In the spiritual practice it is important to remember that our history describes us but does not need to define us. New experiences allow the new of who we are becoming to flow with the least amount of effort.”
– Temple Hayes
Our most common and universal teachings are:
- The nature of God is altogether good – active in all things, at all times.
- All individuals are inherently good because God’s divinity is inherent in everyone.
- People create their life experiences by what they choose to think, believe and feel.
- Through affirmative prayer and meditation, people can connect with God and manifest the best that life has to offer.
- Talking about the Truth is not enough, everyone must live their own Truth.
