Individuals grow spiritually when they are part of a supportive community, a church, of like-minded believers. Our Association of Unity Churches International is dedicated to supporting and strengthening its member ministries, which, in turn, provides this supportive community in places across the globe. Our leadership, human resources, administrative and education programs all work to give local churches the skills and tools needed to support individual transformation. Without our work, Unity churches would not exist.
We are a worldwide network of ministries, ministers, lay teachers and church members sharing the vision and aim of furthering the Charles Fillmore tradition of "Practical Christianity" as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.
The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. After Myrtle Fillmore's remarkable healing utilizing prayer and affirmations, many who were seeking help became interested in how she accomplished this healing. From small prayer circles in living rooms, Unity grew. The first issue of Unity Magazine was published in 1889. The teaching of the practice of prayer, through classes and correspondence, led to the establishment of Unity School, where the prayer ministry, Silent Unity, began along with Unity School for Religious Studies and a publishing arm for magazines and books. These services still exist today, under the name UnityŽ.
In 1965, the Association of Unity Churches was formed by ministers and churches for the purpose of focusing on establishing new churches, supporting existing ones, ordaining ministers and licensing teachers. To this day, we are a worldwide movement of about 1,000 churches and groups supporting individuals on their spiritual path by fostering communities of like-minded believers.
The Association is made up of Unity churches and individuals worldwide. At the home office, we serve Unity churches and members, providing products and programs to help so that:
1) Individuals develop spiritually,
2) Leaders gain skills at all levels, and
3) Churches thrive !
