A positive path for spiritual living

About Us


Unity of Arlington History

Unity of Arlington, also known as Unity Church of Arlington, began as a study group in the home of Keith and Marie Loynachan on August, 10, 1974 with the encouragement and support of then Unity Church of Dallas minister, Donald Curtis.  The church was incorporated on April 12, 1976.  The group met at several locations until the current location on Bowen Road was purchased on June 3, 1983.  The sanctuary and administration buildings were erected on the property in January, 1984.  The Garden Lane Center property which serves as a space for classes, workshops, fellowship, meetings and special events was purchased in July 1998.

Our community is a beautiful gathering of people from different religions and races, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, ages and sexual orientations.


About Unity

Unity is a positive, practical approach to interpreting, understanding and applying the teaching of Jesus Christ as presented in the Christian Scriptures of the Bible. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.

Unity teaches that each person is a unique expression of God.  Our realization of that truth evolves as we expand our consciousness through prayer and meditation.  Living from that awareness transforms our lives and the world. Unity emphasizes that we create our experience of life according to the thoughts we think. Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought, while meditation stills the mind and heightens our awareness of the One Power and One Presence.


Unity Statement of Peace

Unity stands for peace in the presence of conflict; for love in the presence of hatred; for forgiveness in the presence of injury.  Unity honors the many names for God, the many paths to God, the many ways to worship God; for this is only one power and presence of God and that God loves each one of us equally. It is therefore the position of Unity to urge all nations, their leaders and their people to turn to God by whatever the name for guidance during these challenging times and to pursue peace, not war, for this is what honors the God of all our faith traditions.  Unity stands for peace in our lifetime.

Honoring Diversity Within the Unity Movement

We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth. It is imperative that our ministries and outreach be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.

In our effort to reach out to all people as did our Way Shower, Jesus Christ, we support the modification of our facilities to make them accessible to all people, regardless of physical challenges; the translation of our materials into Braille and other languages; and respect for the wonderful variety of human commitments and relationships.

We encourage ministers, teachers and others within Unity to honor the strength of diversity within their spiritual communities. It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.
