What We Believe

The Science of Mind is not a special revelation of any individual; it is, rather, the culmination of all revelations. We take the good wherever we find it, making it our own in so far as we understand it. The realization that Good is Universal, and that as much good as any individual is able to incorporate in his [and her] life, is his [and hers] to use, is what constitutes the Science of Mind and Spirit.

– Ernest Holmes, founder of The Science of Mind and Spirit

We believe

  • there is a Higher Power, a Universal Intelligence, which we refer to as God or Spirit.
  • this Universal Intelligence is loving and operates through all life, never separate from anyone or anything.
  • that studying the spiritual principles and practicing these principles in our life brings us understanding of our oneness with this Divine Presence.
  • in the spiritual principles we teach, called Science of Mind and that these principles are similar to the laws of physics. For example we believe in Cause and Effect, just as it states in the Bible in Matt 9:29 “It is done unto you as you believe.”
  • you are at Cause with your thoughts and what unfolds in your life as a result of your belief is the Effect.
  •  by studying and applying these spiritual laws you can “change your thinking, and change your life” as Ernest Holmes wrote in his book of that name.

Declaration of Principles

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 the Spirit in humankind and that all people are incarnations of the One Spirit….We believe in the eternality, the immortality and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding….We believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us and that we experience this Kingdom 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.
