 Q: What are the founding principles of your teachings?
Lake Forest, CA

A: Our teachings are a philosophy based on the spiritual principles (or laws) of the universe that were developed by Ernest Holmes. He integrated the teachings of several great spiritual leaders such as Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi and many other ancient wisdoms. God is all there is and we are each a Divine, unique expression of God. God is love and we are each here to express that love. There is a power for good in the universe and it is ours to behold. The power of our conscious and unconscious mind is a tool we use to create the life we desire. There is much, much more that is part of this philosophy, but his gives a general understanding of the teachings.

Q: How do you view the Bible and is it something you use in your Sunday Service?

Irvine, CA

A: We view the Bible as a great teaching tool through its stories and references, and understanding the life of Jesus and what his message was all about. Yes, we do refer to the Bible (along with many other texts) as a source for gaining a greater understanding through the lessons and challenges and situations described in great detail. The Bible gives us an opportunity to embrace a deeper perspective of religious and spiritual principles.
