Unity practices affirmative prayer; the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Rather than begging or beseeching God, this method involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome.
Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24). Affirmative prayer reflects the certainty that we are each being led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances.
Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.
Spiritual seekers often say that finding Unity is like coming home. Unity is an open-minded, accepting spiritual community that honors all paths to God. It helps people awaken their spiritual potential and live their truth.
'Unity is a link in the great educational movement inaugurated by Jesus Christ. Our objective is to discern the Truth in Christianity and prove it. The Truth that we teach is not new; neither do we claim special revelations or discovery of new religious principles. Our purpose is to help and teach humankind to use and prove the eternal Truth taught by the Master.'

Although personal and spiritual growth come from within, Unity is committed to helping you find your way to your own understanding—and experience—of God. The results? You feel good about yourself and discover the peace and joy of abundant living.
