About Us - Christ Church Unity of Rockford
We are affiliated with the Unity Headquarters and Unity School of Christianity located at 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, Missouri, www.unityonline.org founded over 100 years ago by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore following dynamic healings of their own physical health through the application of the Jesus Christ teachings.
Other than the Bible, the primary unity text is a book called Lessons In Truth by Emilie Cady who had been a student of Emma Curtis Hopkins. Cady was inspired by biblical teachings and influenced by the ideas of Ralph Waldo Emerson; she was also a contemporary of Emmet Fox and Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Dr. Ernest Holmes, and other great minds of early 1900’s during the awakening of a new understanding of Oneness with God and our relationship with Christ Jesus. This work, including the Unity movement, culminated in what is known as “New Thought”.
Christ Church Unity of Rockford has been in existence for 82 years at various Rockford locations over the years. Eight years ago we purchased the property at our current location and erected our lovely, modern church building. It is often overheard, even by first time visitors, “This is the friendliest church I have ever been to!” We are a friendly, encouraging, loving congregation and all are welcome to visit and participate.
