Welcome to Unity!
Unity of Tucson is a church, Metaphysical bookstore, wedding chapel and a house of worship where loving, practical Christianity is shared. Unity of Tucson offers the gift of acceptance and respect for you and what we know to be your spiritual journey of truly remembering who and what you are; a spiritual being and bathed in the love that is God.
If this is your first visit to our site, please read through What is Unity? and our FAQ sections as they will give an overview of what you can expect to hear within our ministry.
One of the things we have grown to understand is, the more one knows about us, the more there appears to be a resonance between their inner voice and what is Unity.
Please join us to attend an activity or service. As your ministers, we are available and as close as a phone call away should the need arise.

Unity was founded in 1889 in Kansas City, Missouri, by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. After Mrs. Fillmore’s remarkable healing using prayer and affirmations, many friends became interested in how she accomplished this healing. Unity grew from small prayer circles in living rooms to the worldwide movement it is today. (Source: Unity)
Unity is positive, practical Christianity. We teach the effective daily application of the principles of Truth taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ. We promote a way of life that leads to health, prosperity, happiness, and peace of mind. Unity has established centers of study and worship throughout the world where people discover and practice the Unity way of life. We address physical, mental, and emotional needs through affirmative prayer and spiritual education. We serve those who seek inspiration and prayer support as well as those who use Unity teachings as their primary path of spiritual growth. We believe that all people are created with sacred worth, and we strive to reach out to all who seek support and spiritual growth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. Our ministry is free of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, and sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to create a spiritually aware organization that is non-discriminatory and supports diversity. (Source: Unity)
We encourage you to explore and apply Unity teachings based on your own spiritual understanding. We believe this spiritual understanding is enhanced through reflective prayer and meditation. The five basic ideas that make up the Unity belief system are: 1) God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere. 2) We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good. 3) We create our life experiences through our way of thinking. 4) There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our connection to God. 5) Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
