Our Mission and Beliefs

Our Mission

SLCA Meditation

Our mission is to reawaken all
to their spiritual magnificence.


We believe that everyone already holds a Divine sense of awareness within. We just need to tap into it!

Who We Are and Why You Are Enough

Since our first inception as Atlanta Church of Religious Science in 1979 by Dr. Kennedy Shultz, we have grown our identity and stayed true to our commitment to changing lives through the Divine idea that “you are enough”. Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta, now an affiliate of the parent organization Centers for Spiritual Living, currently has an active membership of over 1000 people. We reach an average of 13,000 people worldwide via our weekly live stream broadcast.

Whether you are gay, straight, black, white, young or old, we honor all walks of life and paths to God. We believe that every individual is one with the Universe and our thoughts create our reality.

With this inclusive approach, we strive to inspire and support every person towards growing and taking personal action into reaching their highest potential.

New Thought Beliefs and Science of Mind Teachings

Our New Thought beliefs have evolved to provide inspiration in a safe, welcoming community with the basic tenets of many great scholars, world religions and ancient wisdom.

Our Science of Mind book teachings (not to be confused with Scientology) was established in 1927 by Ernest Holmes. It is a spiritual, philosophical and metaphysical religious teaching within the New Thought movement. Our “change your thinking, change your life” principles have been noted by many world scholars, authors and spiritual figures such as Jesus, Buddha, Martin Luther King, Jr., Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Oprah Winfrey, Wayne Dyer and Marianne Williamson just to name a few.
