Our Beliefs

Unity Church of Raleigh is a sacred spiritual community joining together to experience and express the Power of the living, loving Presence of God in our daily lives.    


At its core, Unity is a positive spiritual practice that seeks wisdom and enlightenment from many spiritual traditions.  Our founders, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, considered their teachings to be “Practical Christianity,” and they looked at all scripture as metaphor and allegory.  As we have grown, we have included principles from a wide range of teachings and New Thought teachers. We know that each individual has a connection to the eternal Truth and power that we call the Divine.  Therefore, we don’t have any dogma; rather, we have spiritual practices that enable each individual’s spiritual and emotional growth. We teach Practical Christianity based on the ancient wisdom of people who walk the talk, such as Jesus.

We welcome all people and honor the God of your understanding. We come together for self-discovery and personal growth, which leads to growth as a community and spiritual family. Spirited and Spirit-filled, we’re all about connecting—whether it’s through compassionate pastoral care in times of need or fun potluck dinners. We embrace people from all backgrounds and walks of life, wherever you may be on your spiritual journey. We gladly offer to support you on your personal path or walk it with you, as you prefer.  As truth seekers, we offer energizing and meaningful ways to discover the Christ spirit within and develop a supportive, loving and fun community of Unity friends!  

We promote a way of life that produces health, prosperity, happiness, and peace of mind.  Unity has established centers of education and worship throughout the world using teachings from five basic principles of healing and prosperity. The Five Principles are the foundation of Unity that UCR employs in its spiritual practices. These 5 Unity Principles are:

  1. God is absolute good, everywhere present.

  2. Every human being has a spark of divinity within, the Christ spirit.  Our essence is of God; therefore, we are inherently good.

  3. We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held in mind.

  4. Through prayer and meditation, we align our heart-mind with God.  Denials and affirmations are tools we use.

  5. Knowing and understanding Unity Principles is not enough - we must also live the Truth we know through our thoughts, words and actions.
