What is Unity?

Unity Center for Spiritual Growth, Windham, Maine is a member of the worldwide Unity movement founded in the late 1800s by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore and part of the broader New Thought Movement.

With Unity Churches throughout the United States, Canada, and the world Unity offers positive, practical teachings that support spiritual evolution and abundant living.

Though our roots are in Christianity, Unity draws heavily upon the universal wisdom found at the heart of all the world’s religions and offers a spiritually progressive, socially responsive, and radically inclusive approach to the traditional Christian faith that is as practical as it is mystical.

 As a result, Unity is a truly welcoming place for those who consider themselves “spiritual looking for a community” or “Christians with questions.”

Many who have given up on traditional church and organized religion but haven’t given up on their faith, God, or their spiritual growth, find exactly what they are looking for in Unity.

What We Believe and Practice

The Nature of God:  God is the Source and Creator of all; everywhere present as the force of love and wisdom that underlies all of existence.

Our Nature:  We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. Human beings are divine at their core and therefore inherently good.

Consciousness:  We create our life experiences through our dominant ways of thinking and feeling. Thought is formative.

Prayer and Meditation:  Prayer and meditation keep us aligned with God—the one great power in the universe.

Living Consciously:  Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live the Truth we know in our daily lives.
