A Teaching and a Way of Life

Our Philosophy

A culmination of ancient wisdom and new thought ideas, the basis of this teaching is that we are connected with everything around us. That which we call 'God' or 'Spirit' is the interconnectedness of all life.

We believe this presence and power is within us and that we can tap into it.

We recognize the creative power of our thoughts and our beliefs. Spiritual living is an ongoing practice of clarifying our vision for the life we want.

As our consciousness expands and our lives improve, the world around us is made better as well. As we create light, love, peace, power, beauty and joy in our own lives, there is a positive effect on the rest of the world. A magnificent life and natural wellbeing is our birthright.

Spiritual tools can enhance all areas of our lives: our physical health, our loving relationships, our creative expression, and our financial situation. 

Sometimes referred to as Science of Mind or Religious Science, this teaching is open at the top. As we evolve and greater wisdom is discovered, we expand our understanding to encompass new ideas. 

To learn more about what we believe, please read the Declaration of Principles, written by Ernest Holmes.
