What is Unity?

Unity Village

Unity Center of Cedar Rapids is a member ministry of Unity Worldwide Ministries.  The Unity movement was founded in 1889 by Myrtle and Charles Fillmore in Kansas City, Missouri. The website www.unityonline.org is an excellent resource to learn more about Unity’s beliefs and history.  UnityCR, established in 1924, is one of the first ministries in the Unity movement.

A Positive Path for Spiritual Living

Our spiritual community is a mighty magnet, attracting people who are ready for a message of Truth. We invite you to join us for 10 a.m. Sunday service with Youth Ministry and nursery. Space adjoining our sanctuary is available for families with infants and toddlers to be a part of the service.

We also offer a 6 p.m. Wednesday meditation service, Thursday 12:15 prayer service, small group ministries, classes, and workshops.

5 Basic Unity Principles  

We encourage you to explore and apply Unity teachings based on your own spiritual understanding. The five basic ideas that make up the Unity belief system are:

  1. God is absolute good and everywhere present.
  2. Our essence is of God, therefore we are inherently good.
  3. We create our experience of life through our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.
  4. Prayer and meditation are our connection with God-Mind.
  5. We must live the Truth that we know.
