Science of Mind Principles

January 8, 2007

Closely related to Reverend Wanda’s talk yesterday is the Science of Mind “Declaration of Principles”. Taken form Ernest Holmes, they are copied here for your review.

We Believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one indestructible, absolute, and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.

We Believe in the incarnation of the Spirit in everyone and that all people are incarnations of the One Spirit.

We Believe in the eternality, the immortality, and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.

We Believe that heaven is within us and that we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of IT.

We Believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

We Believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God.

We Believe that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling Presence.

We Believe in the direct revelation of Truth through the intuitive and spiritual nature of the individual, and that any person may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.

We Believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by the Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.

We Believe in the healing of the sick through the Power of this Mind.

We Believe in the control of conditions through the Power of this Mind.

We Believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness, and the eternal Givingness of Life to all.

We Believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our own destiny; for we understand that the life of all is God.



  1. I really appreciated getting this as a handout at the service. I have read it every day this week and find a new meaning each time I read it. When I first received ‘What We Believe’ I was too new to Science of the mind to really get into the nuances of this important statement. All things, however, return at the right time. Thank you CSL!

  2. I’m glad to have this succinct summary available for those who ask me about The Community for Spiritual Living.

  3. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made
    excellent content material as you probably did, the web shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. Thanks for finally writing about >Science of Mind Principles | The Community For Spiritual
    Living <Liked it!
