Sacred Service

Giving and receiving are both part of a divine continuum of prosperity and abundance. Sacred Service Angels give freely of their time and talent, and in doing so, the church thrives. The church, in turn, gives of its treasury and ministries to serve members of the spiritual community. Members of the spiritual community share the healing they receive as blessings in the larger world. The world rejoices and supports this healing circulation of unconditional love, which of course, inspires and manifests again as volunteers.

Declaration of Principles

Following is a list of the major Principles upon which Religious Science is based. Each Principle is followed by a short declaration from an essay entitled “What I Believe,” written by Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes.

One God

I believe in GOD, the LIVING 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…

Everything is Spirit

I believe in the incarnation of the SPIRIT in all beings and that every person is an incarnation of the ONE SPIRIT…

Personal Immortality

I believe in the eternality, the immortality, and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding…

Heaven on Earth

I believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us and that I experience this kingdom to the degree that I become conscious of it…

Personal Freedom

I believe that the ultimate goal of life is to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all…

Unity of All Life

I believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest GOD and the innermost GOD is one GOD…

Personification of God

I believe that GOD is personal to all who feel this indwelling PRESENCE…

Personal Revelation

I believe in the direct revelation of TRUTH through the intuitive and spiritual nature of humanity, and that any person may become a revealer of TRUTH who lives in close contact with the indwelling GOD…

Universal Law

I believe that the UNIVERSAL SPIRIT, which is GOD, operates through a UNIVERSAL MIND, which is the LAW OF GOD, and that I am surrounded by this CREATIVE MIND which receives the direct impress of my thought and acts upon it…

Spiritual Healing

I believe in the demonstration of HEALING through the power of this MIND…

Personal Power

I believe in the control of conditions through the power of this MIND…
