Also known as the "What We Believe Statements", the Declaration of Principles was first published by our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes in 1927.

  • We believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.


  • We believe in the incarnation of the Spirit in humankind and that all people are incarnations of the One Spirit.


  • We believe in the eternality, the immortality and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.


  • We believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us and that we experience this Kingdom to the degree that we become conscious of it.


  • We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.


  • We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God. 

  • We believe that God is personal to all who feel this Indwelling Presence.


  • We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature and that anyone may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the Indwelling God.


  • We believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.


  • We believe in the healing of the sick through the power of this Mind.


  • We believe in the control of conditions through the power of this Mind.


  • We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-Kindness and the eternal Givingness of Life to all.


  • We Believe in our own soul, our own spirit and our own destiny; for we understand that the life of all is God.
