What We Believe

  • 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 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 incarnation of Spirit in every person and that all people are incarnations of this 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 emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

  • We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God.

  • We believe that God is personal to all who feel this Indwelling Presence.

  • We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through the intuitive and spiritual nature of the individual, and that any person may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the 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 this Mind.

  •  We believe in the control of conditions through the power of this Mind.

  •  We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal 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 each of us is God.


The Declaration of Principles--"What We Believe"--was written by our Founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, and published in the first edition of The Science of Mind Magazine in 1927.
