Victoria Truth Centre
WELCOME TO OUR NEW THOUGHT SPIRITUAL CENTRE !
New Thought is a centuries-old philosophy which believes that every individual is One with the infinite source of all life. Our philosophy of “Oneness with the All in All, both visible and invisible,” is increasingly being embraced by many of today’s contemporary spiritual seekers.
Victoria Truth Centre is an independent member of the New Thought Community and has been serving Victoria since March 8th, 1934. We celebrated our 75th anniversary service on March 8th, 2009 and appreciated the many congratulatory notes from our community.
We invite you to attend our Sunday Services at 11:00 a.m. Our Spiritual practice is a philosophy of “mindfulness” and “creative thinking” which blends traditions of meditation, structured prayer and Spiritual Visioning. Our Sunday service is focused to uplift, inspire and to fulfil the spiritual seeker.
The Victoria Truth Centre is also a supporter of the Arts of Greater Victoria. The Centre serves as a testing facility for the Royal Conservatory of Music, the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival and the Art Gallery of Victoria.
God is All there is. Life is Sowing and Reaping.
We believe in the Power of Prayer.
We believe that as we accept our Oneness with God, we accept the answer to our prayer.
We believe that Life returns to us, blessed and multiplied, that which we give to Life. This is Sowing and Reaping.
We believe that the wisdom that grew the body, heals it.
We believe that a healthy consciousness manifests as a healthy body.
We believe that Life is forever and that the only moment we can live is NOW.
Our purpose is to teach that the Power of Prayer is available to all who accept Oneness with their Good.
We believe there is a solution to every seeming problem, and an answer to every prayer, here and now, when we accept it in consciousness.
To believe something, merely because someone else said it, never makes it necessarily true. So, we say: "We believe in believing, but we do not believe in a belief." On this rock, Victoria Truth Centre stands.
Nothing is ever true just because someone believes it is true, or it happened in ancient times, or it is an ancient philosophy.
We believe in the teachings of Jesus, not because they were taught by him, but because he proved that they were the Truth, and because he showed us so very clearly that we, also, may prove that they are true.
Jesus could have talked about these eternal truths forever and we would only have read about him as a great master or a great philosopher. He acted as though they were so. He proved that they were so. He said: "I believe" and "If you believe, it shall be so."
We believe that one only learns that which is true about life by turning WITHIN. To understand God and the universe requires no special masters.
We BELIEVE that, necessarily, there is ONE POWER. This Power is limitless, glorious GOOD.
When we are still enough and quiet enough, we hear, echoing in our consciousness now, the wisdom of the ages:
"BELIEVE THAT IT IS SO, AND IT SHALL BE SO"
This we believe !
