What is Unity?

Unity is a practical, progressive approach to spiritual connection, based on the power of prayer.

Unity honors the universal wisdom in all religions, respecting an individual’s right to choose their own path. Our services and classes focus on the teachings of Jesus, as well as Buddha, Gandhi and many other wise teachers.

What is Unity of Rehoboth Beach all about?

It's Like "Coming Home!"

This is the sentiment many feel, and often express, when visiting a Unity Center for the first time.

Unity of Rehoboth Beach is affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries, headquartered in Lee’s Summit, Mo. Unity was founded in 1889 in Kansas City, Mo., by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.

Unity of Rehoboth Beach

Unity of Rehoboth Beach believes everyone has sacred worth, and strives to support its members and their spiritual growth — no matter their race, gender identity, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, and sexual orientation. We welcome you to join us!

From Unity Headquarters

“Unity has established centers of study and worship throughout the world where people discover and practice the Unity way of life. We address physical, mental and emotional needs through affirmative prayer and spiritual education.”

“We serve those who seek inspiration and prayer support as well as those who use Unity teachings as their primary path of spiritual growth.”

“The ministries teach the effective daily application of the principles of truth taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ, (As well as many of the other Spiritual Masters of the world.)”

“(W)e recognize the importance of serving all people in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. …Our sincere desire is to create spiritually aware organizations that are non-discriminatory and support diversity. We honor all paths to spiritual awareness.”

Statement for Peace

Unity stands for peace in the presence of conflict; for love in the presence of hatred; for forgiveness in the presence of injury. Unity honors the many names for God, the many paths to God, the many ways to worship God; for there is only one power and presence of God and that God loves each one of us equally. It is therefore the position of Unity Worldwide Ministries and Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village to urge all nations, their leaders and their people to turn to God by whatever the name for guidance during these challenging times and pursue peace, not war, for this is what honors the God of all our faith traditions. Unity stands for peace in our lifetime.

Honoring Diversity Within the Unity Movement

We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth. It is imperative that our ministries and outreach be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.

In our effort to reach out to all people as did our Way Shower, Jesus Christ, we support the modification of our facilities to make them accessible to all people, regardless of physical challenges; the translation of our materials into Braille and other languages; and respect for the wonderful variety of human commitments and relationships.

We encourage ministers, teachers and others within Unity to honor the strength of diversity within their spiritual communities. It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.
