Statements of Faith

  • We believe that God is all there is. That is: there is nothing but God. God is the Alpha, the Omega, and everything in between. All we see and everything we do is the essence of Divinity, God. Logically, then, we believe there is only One Power, and that Power is God.


  • We believe that each of us is responsible for what we make of our lives. We know that accountability and responsibility form the cornerstone of a life worth living. It all begins with the simple understanding that when we choose to change our thinking, our lives out-picture the results.


  • We know that our thoughts, feelings, and the deepest-held beliefs manifest as our experience in daily life. As the master teacher said, "It is done to you as you believe." Science of Mind is the study of mental science and the application and practice of spirituality in our daily lives, not just on Sundays.


  • Through this teaching, the committed student can take control of their own destiny by learning consciousness is everything. One's consciousness is simply the sum total of everything one has thought, been taught, or believed to be the truth about themself from the moment they were born until this moment in time. Many of us were given some negative ideas about ourselves in our formative years. These ideas were brought with us into adulthood, where they are still operating on a regular basis, both consciously and unconsciously.


  • As we learn to change our consciousness, our lives automatically reflect this change in our daily experience. Changing our beliefs is not easy, but it is possible. This is why accountability and responsibility are so vital: Nobody and no church can do this for us. It begins with our very next thought.


  • We need only realize we are each a spiritual being having a human experience. We have free will and freedom of choice, and the Power of the Universe is behind each and every one of us. This awareness has been the beginning of a new life for tens of thousands of individuals. What one person can do, any person can do.


  • We believe that each person is here on Earth to fulfill a purpose: Being all that is, as Spirit, Mind, and Body, God seeks a greater expression of Itself through Its creation, which is humankind. We are to serve God in that fuller expression of Its Divine Nature.


  • Therefore, knowing that God is all there is, we believe that by serving others selflessly, we are also serving God. We refer to this as SEVA. The word SEVA comes from the ancient spiritual language of Sanskrit. It is defined as selfless service dedicated to God.


  • In brief, we believe that we are here to make a difference: To leave our world a better place than we found it. Everyday people can accomplish this in everyday life. One need not be a scientist discovering new medicine or a brain surgeon saving lives in order to make a profound difference. It can be as simple as holding a door open for someone or simply being aware enough to say a kind and loving word at the appropriate time. It might mean finding a way to serve in your local community as a volunteer.


  • There are endless ways to make a positive difference. It begins the moment we remember that we are serving God with our actions. How we choose to do this as individuals and as a spiritual community then becomes our SEVA, purpose and mission.


  • One of the unexpected blessings of performing SEVA is in the knowing that we are all interconnected as One in Spirit. When we give to others, we are also giving to and serving ourselves.


  • We believe there is no one right religion. Every religion provides a pathway for those who practice it and follow its covenants. We believe the primary purpose of all religions is to give each person practicing that religion a true one-to-one experience of God. All paths lead to the top of the same mountain. Each religion is rather like a separate pathway to God.


  • Our pathway of Science of Mind offers more of a spiritual journey than a religious one. Religiosity tends to separate people with opinion, dogma, and ritual that have become habit. Spirituality is a simple mindfulness, a practice of awareness of God’s presence. Spirituality is the experience of God rather than discussion and opinion about God.


  • We endeavor to find our commonality through the practice of spirituality and unity with one another and with God. This is what the seeker will find at the core of what we teach, practice, and believe.
