Unity Church of Jacksonville is a spiritual community and family. Our church building on Lomax Street was officially blessed and dedicated in 1950, but our community began long before that. Our church continues to evolve and grow, while in many ways remaining the same. We have always welcomed anyone who felt called to join us in the discovery of Truth and in the practice of Love. We continue to be a God-centered church based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, yet we also realize that God is understood and expressed in different ways. We honor diversity of spiritual thought as well as diversity in people. We see each of us as a child of God and as unlimited in potential. We see each of us guided not by uniform doctrines and dogmas, but by the light of God shining in our own hearts and minds.
Like all Unity churches, Unity Church of Jacksonville is completely supported and maintained by the love and contributions of its members. Our church’s finances and vision are governed by a Board of Directors, made up of church members who are elected by the congregation. We are a tithing church, meaning that each month our Board takes 10% of the church’s income and shares it with organizations and people who spiritually feed us. We hold as true that we are blessed and made prosperous by and through our Oneness with God.
A volunteer group made up of church members and the Board joined to create Mission and a Vision Statements, as well as identifying our Core Values in order to clarify who we are in Community. We are all of these and more.
