About Us

About the Minister – Reverend Dr. Cheryl Rose

I have been the spiritual leader at Unity Spiritual Center of Springfield VA since January 2008. Prior to that I was the Youth Minister for five years. I am married to Charlie and have three children Kim, Kelsey and Michael. Kim is a RN living in Pennsylvania. Michael just finished his second year at Landmark College in Putney VT, Kelsey just graduated with her Masters in Education from Princeton Theological Seminary. And of course, the most important member of the family – 13 year old Tippy, our Jack Russell terrier.

I am honored to be a part of this community that supports one another to grow spiritually and to live Principle as we deal with life’s joys and challenges. My passion is community expressed through serving our greater community in service projects, such as our bi-annual Recirculation Day at the Fairfax County Resource Center, and having fun together at our classes and  community events such as our annual pool party, musical events, our annual Christmas Candlelight Service and Sunday Celebration in the Park.


What We Believe

What is Unity?
Unity is a positive, practical, approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.
Unity’s 5 Principles
God Is
God is absolute good and everywhere present; therefore there can be no opposing power.
I Am
Human beings are created with an inherent divinity referred to as Christ consciousness.  Our very essence is of God, and we are, therefore, inherently good and always connected.
I Create it
As human beings, we create our own experience through the activity of our thoughts.  We formulate our perceptions and choose our responses.
I Pray
Through prayer and meditation, we create an intimate relationship with God. This heightened connection with God-Mind brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and all our good. Prayer does not change God; it changes us.
I Live it 
Knowing and understanding the laws of these Universal Truth Principles are not enough, we must also live the Truth as we understand it.
