Our Foundation Spiritual Principles:


  • G-d (Intelligence, Power, Spirit) is Absolute Good, everywhere present.
  • Every human being is an expression of the divine; the Christ Spirit, by whatever name, indwells all people. Their very essence is of G-d, and therefore they are also inherently good.

  • Human beings create their experience 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 G-d-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.

Weekly Message for January 16, 2022


                    [parts 1 and 2 is available here

It is more difficult for some than others to loose the thoughts of the past and the memories of days gone by and the experiences, both good and bad, that have been a part of our life.  Yet, we know in our heart of hearts that no matter how much or how little good we have experienced in the past, today is the day that is most important to us and we will lose the treasure of time if we do not make the most out of each day. 

                 Refreshing our mind to a renewing of what we know is the spirit in which we can realize success and prosperity, joy, happiness and loving companionship is possible for each and every one of us.  Say to yourself, "I create new heavens and a new earth and the former things shall not be remembered or come into my mind" ... how do these words make you feel?  Perhaps you feel nothing?  Perhaps it is because you do not fully understand the words; heavens symbolizes ideas, opportunities, potentialities, and earth symbolizes new conditions, new circumstances, new success, increased prosperity.  Change the words so that they mean something to you; i.e. "I create new ideas and opportunities that provide for me an increased prosperity and success in all that I do as I loose the former things from my mind and my memory" ... and realize that this "I" is eternally a part of the "infinite I" and connects us to the Power, Spirit and Intelligence of the Source of Life, G-d ... and to all Living things.

        Let's affirm this with faith and conviction:
            I believe and I receive.
I believe with a deep, inward calm that my word of faith is responded to in the affirmative.
I know that my word penetrates any and every unbelief in my thought; it casts out fear, removes doubts, and permits that which I desire to experience to be made manifest in the right and perfect time.
I have complete conviction that my prayers will be carried out in my experience with mathematical certainty.
I have absolute reliance upon the Law of Good, which is the Law of Life.
I know that as I keep faith with these words, everything works for my good.
I believe and I receive.
              And So It Is!  Amen.

               As we work with affirmations changing the words and getting "into the spirit of it" we will find a shift in our thoughts and a confidence that we may never have had before.  As we speak to our good, think to our good, G-d Intelligence begins to correspond to what we are believing to be true for us.  As we read in the ancient scriptures Psalm 37:4
"Delight in the Lord (power of your mind) and you will receive the desires of your heart" ... and this is pure spiritual Principle.

     We can use affirmations, prayer, meditation, contemplation and reflection, to sow into the Intelligence/Mind of Spirit that which we desire to experience and the Power of the Spirit receives the "impress of our thought" and corresponds to it.  Let us refresh our mind and renew our consciousness of faith and power and belief and thoughts to conform to this spiritual law that provides for us the good desires of our heart.

Keep the Faith!
(Reverend Dr. Henry Lee Bates)
