Unity School of Christianity Missouri

QUESTION: Unity School of Christianity Missouri - What is the History?


In 1884, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore moved to Kansas City, Missouri and decided to begin a spiritual work. Together they launched the magazine Modern Thought in 1889 and the Society for Silent Unity in 1890. In 1891, the Fillmore's named their entire movement Unity. In 1914, these ministries and several others the couple began merged into the Unity School of Christianity.

The Fillmore's (Charles, Myrtle and their sons Lowell, Rickerd, and Royal) were among the few gifted spiritual innovators who created, over the course of the twentieth century, a successful worldwide spiritual movement, which is now known as the Unity Movement.

The school originated from prayer meetings which began in 1889 in the Kansas City living room of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore.

The organizations that carry forth the Fillmore's work are the Unity School of Christianity and the Association of Unity Churches. In 1929, Unity relocated to Lee's Summit, Missouri, which is about 15 miles southeast of downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The Unity School is located at Unity Village, Missouri on a 1400 acre tract of land. This large campus became their world headquarters and has a landmark Unity Tower, a fountain, which is crossed by the Bridge of Faith, a library, and chapel. The school trains around 60 Unity ministers every 2 years.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
