The Five Elements

TEACHING

"And Jesus went all about Galilee teaching in their synagogues." Matthew 4:23

"Unity is a link in the great educational movement inaugurated by Jesus Christ, our objective is to discern the truth in Christianity and prove it. The truth that we teach is not new, neither do we claim special revelations or discovery of new religious principles. Our purpose is to help and teach mankind to use and prove the eternal truth taught by the Master." Charles Fillmore (Co-founder of the Unity School of Christianity).

PREACHING

"And he went about all Galilee... preaching the gospel of the kingdom." Matthew 4:23

"Jesus preached, the kingdom of God cometh not with observations: neither shall they say, 'Lo, here, or there! For lo, the kingdom of God is within you'." Luke 17:20, 21

"Awake! Sleeper in the human mind. Rise out of low ideals into the high. Rouse yourself for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. You are a king! Bestir yourself, the Christ of God is born in you, and the hour of your reign is truly at hand.

"The kingdom of heaven, the new dimension of mind and energy, is being unfolded today...its source is not in outer things. It comes from sources within men. So we must develop spiritual understanding and spiritual power. Man is the out-picturing of the infinite and creative mind, and all the capacity of that great Mind is his inheritance." Charles Fillmore

HEALING

"...to be healthy is natural. It is a state of being sound or whole in mind, body and soul. To heal then is to bring forth the perfect Christ man that exists within each of us.

"...we must have faith in Spirit and through our thinking build it into our consciousness, then our bodies will be restored to harmony, health, and eternal life.

"Experience proves the power of words to bring health. In healing myself, I talk to my body, repeating necessary denials and affirmations. This raises my consciousness to spiritual reality where all healing power originates." Charles Fillmore

PRAYER

"But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret and your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matthew 6:6 (Jesus)

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

"Prayer is man's steady effort to know God. Through prayer we gain the intimate relationship with God that Jesus must have enjoyed when He said, 'I and the Father are one'.

"Prayer is both invocation and affirmation. Meditation, concentration, denial, and affirmation in the silence are all forms of...prayer." Charles Fillmore

FELLOWSHIP

"Our fellowship is with the Father and with his son, Jesus Christ. If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another." John 1-3, 7

"This Unity church is not really a place, but always a people; never a fold, but always a flock; never a sacred building, but always a believing assembly.

"As we, individual students of truth, unite in sprit, drawn into cooperation and friendship through invisible bonds of love and mutual interest in the gospel of truth that Jesus taught, lived, and proved, we strengthen one another and work together in his name. We are mutually blessed as we grow in Christ consciousness together." Membership Dedication .. Unity Service Manual
