Unity on the River Vision Statement

We are a vibrant spiritual community that celebrates the Presence in all and awakens humanity to its Divinty.


We support all people in their individual quest to know God and find hope, healing, prosperity, and peace. Our philosophy offers a practical approach to Christianity and helps people of all faiths apply positive spiritual principles in their daily lives.

  1. God is the Source and Creator of all, God is good and everywhere present.
  2. We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.
  3. Our thinking creates our life experiences.
  4. Through the power of affirmative prayer & meditation, we increase our connection to God.
  5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
