Unity Principles

The 5 Basic Unity Principles



GOD IS.  God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.

I AM.  We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, All people are inherently good.

I THINK.  We create our life experiences through our way of thinking.

I PRAY.  There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God.

I DO.  Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.

I REMEMBER.  We suffer when we forget the truth about God and ourselves, either individually or collectively.

I BELONG.  Belonging to a spiritual community supports and deepens my experience of God.
