We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence,
purpose, beauty, and order.
Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, Spirit or Universal Intelligence, we are always conscious that all people, places, and things come from this Universal Intelligence that is within each of us and is all around us.
We believe that God is a Loving Intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through study and spiritual practice we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. We believe in Cause and Effect and we teach that, “It is done unto you as you believe.” (Matt 9:29) In essence, your thinking and your expectations create your reality. By studying and applying spiritual laws, you can change your unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in your life.
Religious Science was founded in 1926 by Dr. Ernest Holmes, an internationally recognized authority on religious psychology. He began a journey of exploration and research that profoundly affected thinkers throughout America. His works, based on the teachings of great philosophers, the sacred wisdom of both Eastern and Western traditions, offer a philosophy of religion and psychology that emphasizes the limitless potential of the human mind.
Redondo Beach Center for Spiritual Living began life in 1947 as Redondo Beach Church of Religious Science. It’s first services were held at the Masonic Temple at 116 Ruby Street in Redondo Beach. The church began with twelve members and a pastor named Dr. A Schultz.
In the scientific aspect of our teaching, we believe there is a body of knowledge about spiritual laws which operates in the Universe as Cause and Effect. We teach that “It is done unto you as you believe.” Our thinking and our expectations create our reality. It is in studying and applying spiritual laws that we can change our unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in our lives.
