Who is Unity Church of Jackson?
Unity founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore studied the Bible as history and allegory and interpreted it
Expressing the Christ within us all.
We believe Jesus expressed his divine potential and sought to show humankind how to express our divinity. We see Jesus as a master teacher of universal truths and a Way Shower to be the innocents of Love or Christ- Consciousness. In Unity, Christ means the divinity within and is available to all. Jesus is our great example of the Christ and the essence of Love in physical expression.
The Nature of Humankind
We are each individual, eternal expressions of God. Our essential nature is divine and therefore inherently good. Our purpose is to express our divine potential as realized and demonstrated by Jesus and other master teachers. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses in and through our lives.
as a metaphysical representation of humankind's evolutionary journey toward spiritual awakening.
In addition, Unity recognizes that the Bible is a complex collection of writings compiled over many centuries. We honor the writings as reflecting the understanding and inspiration of the writers at the time they were written. The Bible continues to be a valuable spiritual resource for us.
Unity emphasizes the creative power of thought in our life experience. We refer to this as the Law of Mind Action.(Also known as the law of attraction) When we take personal responsibility to choose life-affirming thoughts, words and actions, we experience a more fulfilling and abundant life.
Unity emphasizes the importance of applying spiritual principles in our daily lives, and we embrace the many paths to our individual divinity.
Unity teaches that each person is a unique expression of God created with sacred worth. Living from that awareness transforms our lives and the world.
Prayer and Meditation
Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth.
Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.
Youth and Family Ministry
Unity recognizes that there are many expressions of family life. All are welcome. Unity creates an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility and unconditional love and acceptance.
In Unity, we feel a sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our churches, our communities and our world.
