The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in 1889 as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own reality. The Fillmores regarded Jesus as the great example rather than the great exception; interpreted the Bible metaphysically; and taught that God is present within all of us.
Our world headquarters at Unity Village, Missouri, provides a tranquil atmosphere for quiet meditation and a place for all people, regardless of faith or nationality, to worship. The prayer, publishing, education and retreat ministries allow us to provide people around the world with positive, spiritual messages of hope, healing, prosperity and peace. Learn more.
How We Serve
Prayer is the foundation and the heart of our work. For more than one hundred years, Unity has been dedicated to helping people through prayer. Silent Unity®, the prayer ministry of Unity, responds to nearly 2 million requests from people who write, call or email for prayer support throughout the year. A vigil of prayer is maintained in Silent Unity around the clock so that we are available for those who request prayer. Learn more.
