to Unity Spiritual Center of San Francisco! We invite you to explore all the resources here for living a more meaningful life. Please join us for an inspiring service Sunday at 11 a.m.
We Are Part of a Worldwide Spiritual Movement…
Unity Spiritual Center is part of a world-wide spiritual movement with headquarters in Unity Village, Missouri, near Kansas City. Unity is a way of life. It is often called “a positive path for spiritual living.” We have no set creed in Unity, but we do have five foundation statements that express the essence of who we are.
Unity is a teaching of personal empowerment. Our commitment as a congregation is to be a support system for each other as we seek individually and collectively to live in alignment with God, the Spirit of Infinite Goodness, and create happy, healthy, prosperous, fulfilling lives.
We welcome you with open hearts and affirm the truth of these words: “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell in Unity!” (Psalms 133:1).
