The Five Basic Unity Principles
- God is everywhere equally present and all good.
- The presence of God dwells within each person.
- Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
Everything in the manifest realm has its beginnings in thought.
- Prayer and meditation are the direct link with Mind/Heart of God.
- Knowing the Laws of Truth is not enough. A person must live the Truth he/she believes.
Honoring Diversity Within the Unity Movement
(Adopted by the Association of Unity Churches International and Unity School of Christianity, January 23, 1995)
We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth. It is imperative that our ministries and outreaches be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.
In our effort to reach out to all people as did our Way shower, Jesus Christ, we support the modification of our facilities to make them accessible to all people, regardless of physical challenges; the translator of our materials into Braille and other languages; and respect for the wonderful variety of human commitments and relationships.
We encourage ministers, teachers and others within Unity to honor the strength of diversity within their spiritual communities. It is with love and in celebration of our unity in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.
