In The Beginning

Ernest Holmes, Our Founder

Ernest Holmes“The account of creation, which says that, ‘in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,’ does not refer to a time when there was no creation but rather to the process of eternal creation, which is a continual manifestation of Spirit.

An eternal creation is proven by the fact that we must suppose Spirit to be conscious Intelligence, and there can be no conscious intelligence (page 5) unless it is conscious of something. Spirit is consciousness, hence It must be conscious of something, therefore It must always create. What a glorious concept is the idea of an eternal creative Principle!

There is no stagnation in Spirit, nor should there be any in our idea of spirituality. To be spiritual is to create. The Spirit is alive, conscious, aware and active, always. But how does the Spirit create and from what does It, through Its creative genius, mold definite forms?

These questions are pertinent to our philosophy. If we suppose Spirit to be the Life principle running through all things, the cause of all, then we must suppose that It has substance within Itself. It is self-existent consciousness, and also self-existent Substance.”

“Spirit makes things out of Itself through some inner act upon Itself. This inner act must, of course, be an act of consciousness, of self-perception, self-knowingness. What God knows, is.”

What We Believe

What We Teach

We teach the Science of Mind, which is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the idea that we live in a Spiritual Universe; that God or Spirit is in, through, around us; and that this Presence is a loving source of all Good.

Connecting community to Spirit!

We recognize that an inherent desire in every individual is to realize the person God intended us to be. As we realize our true God selves, the greatest gift we can give another is to support him or her in becoming that God person too.

Most important, every man, woman and child who lives in the Universe is significant to the Creator. Our doors will forever be open to all…
