About Unity Church of Hawai‘i
What we believe
...can be summarized in one word: OOMPA.
O: stands for One Presence and One Power, which is God.
O: is original virtue: we're not born into sin...we learn it later.
M: mindful co-creators: We co-create our experience, so be mindful of thought.
P: is prayer and meditation
A: reminds us that action is essential.
Listen to Rev. Sky St. John explain OOMPA:
We began in the 1930s as a small group, eventually moving to our first building in Waikiki. In 1964, we built our current home on the slopes of Diamond Head, where we continue to grow, thrive, and offer a spiritual beacon to our island and our world.
We fulfill a special role as one of the islands' leading New Thought institutions, offering classes, workshops, and special events featuring speakers and teachers of national and international renown.
Through the decades, we have provided a safe, loving space for all persons to rediscover and express their Divinity. In Unity, we embrace all religious denominations and believe that there is truth in all teachings.
Hawai‘i is one of the most diverse places on Earth. To honor our diversity, we affirm:
We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. It is imperitive that our ministries and outreaches are free of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, and sexual orientation. It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of wonderful diversity, that we affirm this position.
