Unity of Sarasota's Vision

We Are a Beacon of Light and Love
Opening Minds, Touching Hearts, Transforming Lives

Unity is a movement in spiritual consciousness rather than a denomination or a religion - our emphasis is on spiritual enlightenment. We are each individual, eternal expressions of God, celebrating our divine nature.

We believe in practical spirituality, which is a life-affirming focus on Body, Mind and Spirit.

Unity of Sarasota is a welcoming and inclusive environment. We embrace the diversity of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation.

All are welcome here!

  • What happens at a service?

    Our Sunday Morning Celebration Service is one of joy and reverence for the divine spark in all of us. We gather together to pray, sing, listen, and rejoice in the celebration of life. Each service has music, guided meditation, and spiritual lessons shared by our minister or a guest speaker.

  • What happens when I am a first-time attendee?

    When services resume at the Unity of Sarasota sanctuary, we welcome our first-time visitors with an information packet and a seashell necklace that we ask you to wear, so our congregants will make a special effort to greet you and get to know you.  The necklace also allows you first-in-line privileges in our Gratitude Café after the service. We hold a class for new attendees once a quarter, usually after the service, so we can get to know each other better.

  • What denomination are you?

    Unity is a movement in spiritual consciousness, rather than a denomination or a religion. We believe that God is Spirit, the loving source of all that is. God is the one power, all good, everywhere present, all wisdom. God is divine energy, continually creating, expressing and sustaining all creation. In God, we live and move and have our being. In Unity, some other ways we may speak of God are Life, Light, Love, Substance, Principle, Law and Universal Mind.


    Our emphasis is on spiritual transformation. We are each individual, eternal expressions of God. Our essential nature is divine and, therefore, inherently good. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses in and through our lives.


    Unity is a welcoming environment and represents diversity of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation.
