Welcome from Rev. Ann Marie
Welcome Home. Again and again we hear people say, “I think I’ve found my spiritual home.” Maybe they feel the warmth and the love that is here. Maybe it’s because Unity teaches universal truths rather than religious doctrine. Maybe it’s because we combine mental science with the heart of Christian mysticism. The Truth we teach is not new – it is universal and eternal, meaning the same for everyone. People often ask us, “Are you Christian?” I like to say, “We are Christian and more, in that we welcome friends from all philosophies and we honor all paths that lead to God.”
We offer a safe environment for freedom of exploration. We are seekers and explorers of Truth in all things. In Unity, we believe God is absolute good … and because we all exist within and as part of this divine energy, each of us is also inherently good.
The Unity movement is open and welcoming of all individuals regardless of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation. We invite you to read our formal (yet ever-evolving) statement of diversity and inclusion.

WHAT IS UNITY?
People often ask, “What is Unity?” Unity is a Positive Path for Spiritual Living. We are Christian and more, in that we welcome people of all faiths and philosophies and honor all paths that lead to God. We are seekers and explorers of Truth. Our primary emphasis is on the practical application of universal, spiritual principles that transform lives. Through the practical application of these spiritual principles, as taught by Jesus Christ, every person can realize and express his or her divine potential for a healthier, happier and more successful life.
