What We Believe


"What We Believe, by Dr. 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 it 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 individualization of Spirit in us and that all people are individualizations 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 Heaven is within us and that we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of it.

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

We believeĀ in the Unity of All life and that the Highest God and the Innermost God is One God. We believ 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 this 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 the Mind.

We believe in the Eternal Goodness, the EternalĀ  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.
