About Unity of Fairfax

At Unity of Fairfax, we offer a welcoming, safe environment to explore one’s own relationship with God in a community of like-minded individuals.

We do not condemn anything, but affirm the healing of everything through the power of love and acceptance.

We seek to be of service, to experience the joy of living, the wonder of loving, and the miracles produced by faith.


Centered in Divine Love, we honor and celebrate a world awakened to peace, abundance and respect for all creation.


We are a vibrant spiritual community awakening each life to the Christ within.

A Note From Rev. Russ: 

If you are looking for a spiritual community of loving people, you have come to the right place. Our community is made up of people, like yourself, who have been led to Unity by Spirit. We are all here because we’re on a spiritual journey to become all that we were created to be.

Unity welcomes people of all religious backgrounds and beliefs. We welcome people of all creeds, sexual orientation and social background. There are no exceptions in our welcome to everyone. In Unity we don’t tell people what to think; rather, we offer tools that individuals can use to create lives of meaning and purpose. It’s an exciting time to be here because positive, empowering  transformation is occurring!

Please stop by and check us out. You will find a warm welcome awaits you, and when you’re ready, we’ll support you in making friends and finding ways to have meaningful connections within the community. If you have questions, please contact me. I look forward to meeting you.
