About Unity Center of Healing Light
The Unity teachings can be described in a number of ways. Fundamentally, we believe that everyone, regardless of their station in life, background, income, education, culture or family situation, is a child of God. We believe that God loves all of his children – each of us, and wants the best for all of us. We believe that as children of God, we are worthy of and entitled to live a good, healthy, productive, fulfilling, prosperous and successful life.
We believe that the Spirit and essence of God dwells within each person, and as we recognize and connect with it, we will be able to express and demonstrate the good that we desire. As we align our consciousness with the presence and power of God within us, we will realize that the good we desire is actually the good that God has revealed to us that is possible for us to experience.
At Unity Church of Healing light, we believe Jesus when he said, “It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” We teach that God (our Higher Power) wants all of us, and that means YOU, to live a healthy, happy, prosperous and successful life, filled with love, harmony and peace.
In Unity, we study the life and teachings of Jesus the Christ. We emphasize His Christhood, rather than His personhood. We teach that the same Spirit of God, the Christ, that was in Jesus, is in all people. We realize that Jesus expressed the Christ spirit to it’s fullest, and our goal is to do the same.
We present the Unity teachings in a very practical and easy to understand manner. We realize that many people have similar life experiences, whether in regards to health, employment, business, careers, family. As such, we present the teachings of Jesus and the spiritual teachings throughout the Bible, in a way that can help everyone understand and apply them to improve any and every area of their lives.
