Philosophy & Practice

Talking the "Talk"

What We Believe             by Ernest Holmes 

  • We believe in God [Source], 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-most 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.

    Ernest Holmes,
    Founder of Religious Science

In other words: we know that our persistent thoughts become our experience; that we can make ourselves sick, poor, angry and contrary, etc. just as we can also make ourselves well and wealthy, kind and benevolent~always through our preponderance of thinking. "Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so."  Shakespeare

What we think about--we bring about...because our thoughts--the way we perceive life--become our experience. 


Walking the "walk" is supporting this journey in ways that lift us out of our human drama and into a deeper way of knowing the Truth that sets us free.

  • Our intention is to celebrate our Oneness in Spirit while we honor our human diversity and differences.  It is our desire to embrace the awareness of unity in multiplicity that promotes personal, relational and planetary healing. 
  • If you have a desire to heal, integrate and grow, then the teachers affiliated with this Center are ready to support you in expanding your consciousness.
  • First and foremost, Shiloh is a teaching/learning center, supporting spiritual growth & community, meeting each other on our journeys through life's experiences.
  • At Shiloh, we're committed to offering a wide range of opportunities to expand your spiritual development.
  • The breadth and depth of our coursework and the caliber and quality of the teaching and facilitation~plus compassionate and insightful guidance~will support you gently through your self-discovery process. 


Holding the "High Watch"

We continue to hold the "high watch" for a constant state within our knowingness of the spiritual Truth of everyone.

Every person:

  • is a divine child of God;
  • has the same potential and the same access to the power of the Universe;
  • is a spiritual being expressing as God to the best of his/her ability and according to her/his belief;
  • is here for divine purpose~to be a clear channel of the loving energy of the universe; 
  • is here to experience and express joy in the sharing of that love with each other;
  • experiences that love and joy when they give themselves to each moment~to life~in small and magnificent ways;
  • makes a difference, because without each of us...this thing called life would be missing something of value...YOU!    

We are here for you and YOU are loved!
