What We Believe
By Dr. Ernest Holmes

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 individualization of the Spirit in Us,
and that all people are individualizations of the One

We believe in the eternality, the immortality, and
the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever

We believe that heaven is within us, and that we
experience it to the degree that we become conscious
of it.

We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete
freedom 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. We believe
that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling

We believe in the direct revelation of truth through
our intuitive and spiritual nature, and that anyone
may become a revealer of truth who lives in close
contact with the indwelling God.

We believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God,
operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law
of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative
Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought
and acts upon it.

We believe in the healing of the sick through the
power of this Mind.

We believe in the control of conditions through the
power of this Mind.

We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal
Loving-kindness, and the eternal Givingness of Life
to all.

We believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our
own destiny; for we understand that the life of all
is God.
