Core Ideas

  • God is absolute good, everywhere present. 
  • Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good. 
  • Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought. 
  • Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.
  •  Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the Truth that he or she knows.
