CP HEADER WHAT WE BELIEVE.png
Our Guiding Principles
We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence, purpose, beauty, and order. Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, Spirit, Energy, or Universal Intelligence, we are ever conscious that all people, places, and things emanate from this Universal Intelligence that is within us and all around us.

You and God are Inseparable

We believe that God is a Loving Intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through study and spiritual practice we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “It is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, your thinking and your expectations create your reality. By studying and applying spiritual laws, you can change your unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in your life.

The Declaration of Principles - Ernest Holmes, 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 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.
