Our Mission Statement and Principles


We are an inclusive community of positive-minded people, learning and supporting each other in living healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives.


Five Unity Principles

  • God is absolute good, everywhere present.
  • Our essence is of God, therefore we are inherently good.
  • We create our experiences by the activity of our thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.
  • Prayer is creative thinking that aligns our heart-mind with God and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.
  • We live the Truth we know through thoughts, words and actions.

Living Our Principles


We strive to approach situations calmly and peacefully by focusing our thinking on the power, love, and goodness of God. As we encounter people, we treat them with care and compassion, seeing the Christ Spirit: the goodness within them.
We handle our daily activities with joy, focusing our attention and thinking not on lack, illness, or negativity, but on prosperity, health, and happiness. Therefore, we find ourselves moving easily and joyously, fulfilling our highest desires.
We spend time in quiet prayer and meditation, bringing the Presence of God into our awareness. As we engage in life’s activities, we express and manifest God’s Presence.

Youth and Family Ministry


Unity recognized 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. We behold all children as whole and perfect expressions of God. We empower children to fulfill their divine potential. We teach children to meditate and pray and invite them to experience a loving God.

 


LGBT Affirming

 We are an all-inclusive community of truth seekers. We offer a safe and welcoming place for all who wish to explore and/or further their spiritual journey.

We have had a presence at St. Cloud Pride In the Park since 2010 and have been an official sponsor since 2012.  We are supporters of PFLAG.  We also offer a beautiful venue for same-sex weddings.  

Many of our congregants are members of the LGBT community and many more are allies of the LGBT community.  If you are in need of support regarding your sexual orientation, please feel free to contact Rev. Barbara. She will gladly offer support and/or connect you with a LGBT congregant who can support you as well.
