Unity of New Braunfels, chartered in 1998, is affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries and Unity World Headquarters, which is inclusive and open-minded and offers a positive path for spiritual living,
Unity is a practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path. We are a non-denominational movement. Unity is considered a movement of new thought, providing spiritual education through God-centered beliefs that empower abundant and meaningful living and enable people to experience oneness with God every day.
Reverend Gary Canier leads Unity of New Braunfels, which offers two services each Sunday, at 9:15 am and 11:00 am with messages that encourage personal initiative and growth in a holistic, intuitive and spiritual environment. Unity’s services are designed to teach spiritual principles for daily living and encourage a direct experience with God in our meditation prayer time. The music is written specifically to support the messages on Sunday and is performed acoustically with both heart and soul.
Unity’s congregation is warm and welcoming and encourages relationship building through study groups, mens and womens groups, and small group ministry. Special interests that are offered include yoga classes, Tuesday evening meditation, Pranic healing sessions, Reiki sessions and A Course in Miracles class. Our youth group is thriving and actively involved in service and their own spiritual growth.
Unity of New Braunfels helps people live more fully and abundantly through greater spiritual awareness and strives to make a positive difference in the world. First time visitor? What to expect.
Five Principles of Unity
- God is absolute good, everywhere present.
- Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within. Their very essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good.
- Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.
- Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.
- Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called truth, are not enough. A person must also live the truth that he or she knows.
We recognize and honor the Divine within as the common denominator that we share on our human journey.
The living heart of Unity understands and manifests its support of this Divinity by recognizing there is inherent good in all people. Unity Worldwide Ministries, its members and affiliates, welcome with love all people in every form of God’s creation, regardless of how that creation presents itself. It is the intent that Unity organizations are inclusive and non-discriminatory. We honor all components that contribute to the diversity of community. We affirm and support Unity principles and programs that manifest diversity in our teachings, policies, buildings and within our communities. We are resolute in walking the course of human rights and social justice for all. —August 2016
