ABOUT US

Unity is a family.  We find our identity in Christ and He calls us heirs and we relate to one another as brothers and sisters.  That means we are of one heart and one purpose: to love God above and to love others.  We seek to work together as family but also are eager to welcome others as family.  

 

Unity is community.  God has made us unique – each person specifically gifted and called to make a difference in the world.  The local church seeks to build community by tapping each person’s gift to love and serve one another and beyond.  We aren’t perfect nor pretend to be perfect.  But because of Christ’s love, we seek to be one as a community.

 

Unity is on a mission.  That life-giving mission is to bring Kingdom transformation wherever God calls us to serve.  Some days our gatherings are focused on nurturing and equipping.  Other days, we are mobilizing and sending.  We are committed to seeing God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

OUR HISTORY

SMALL BEGINNINGS

  1. Unity Church gathers for worship each week in the community of Prinsburg, Minnesota, a town of 500 people in rural western Minnesota.
  2. Founded in 1984, this small worshipping community called themselves "Unity" and worked together to chart a new course of ministry in our area.
  3. Since its inception, Unity has engaged in 3 different building projects, and has grown from our first gathering of 140 people, to just over 300 today.
  4. Unity has had a global impact in its short history, equipping and empowering missional work in Haiti, Nigeria, Turkey, Gambia, and with the indigenous peoples of northern Wisconsin, and locally amongst the Somlian refugees.  Other missional efforts include the local college campus, Youth for Christ, jail ministry in the St. Cloud penitentiary, and through missional outreachs in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, and New York City.
