We behold the Light in you

Welcome to Unity of Greater Portland! We would love to have you come and celebrate a deeper walk in God with us. We are a loving community that celebrates together our love of God, of each other, and all of life. Many who have come here for the first time commonly express, with a sense of awe and gratitude, “I feel like I’ve come home.”

You may know about Unity from the Daily Word, our daily devotional that brings comfort and insight to millions of people around the world, or from Silent Unity, our worldwide prayer ministry.

Unity is a non-denominational Christ-based community and, as its name implies, welcomes and cherishes all people. Our greeting to each other is “Namaste,” meaning “I behold the Light in You.”

Have you ever noticed that “I am not enough” and “I don’t have enough” are virtually universal beliefs in our society, contributing to depression, addiction, hopelessness, fear, separation and even violence?

Are you concerned that humanity is consuming far too much, placing a dangerous and accelerating burden on the planet? Learn more
