Our Beliefs

Legacy promotes a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings exemplified by Jesus Christ, and through the power of prayer, meditation, and visioning. Legacy respects each individual's right to choose a spiritual path.  

Legacy supports that all people are created with sacred worth, and we strive to reach out to all who seek support and spiritual growth. We recognize the importance of serving all people in spiritually, emotionally, and tangible ways that express the care and love of Jesus Christ. Our ministries and outreaches are free of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation. It is Legacy's sincere desire that all Legacy ministries and gatherings are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.

At Legacy, we feel a sacred responsibility, individually and collectively, to make a positive difference through personal example and active service in our families, our communities and our world.

Legacy Life Enrichment Center recognizes and welcomes all of the various expressions of family life. Legacy creates an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility and unconditional love and acceptance.

Basic Teachings of Legacy Life Enrichment Center

Each person is a unique expression of God created with sacred worth. Living from that awareness transforms our lives and world. Legacy emphasizes the creative power of thought in our life experience. When we take personal responsibility to choose life-affirming thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and these are expressed in our actions, we experience a more fulfilling, purposeful, and abundant life.

It is Legacy's desire to continue to evolve as we identify, embrace, and apply spiritual insights and the spiritual implications of new discoveries as disclosed to us through God's continuing acts of creation.

Legacy believes in the following basic ideas:

• God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.

• Humans are spiritual beings created in God's image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.

• We create our life experience through our way of thinking.

• There is power in affirmative prayer, meditation, and visioning, which we believe increases our connection to God.

• Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.

Trinity

Legacy believes that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each distinct from the other.  The Trinity is the ultimate relationship and exemplifies the relationship humans are to have with God and each other.

God

God is the loving source of all that is. God is the one power, all good, everywhere present, and all wisdom. God is divine energy, continually creating, expressing, and sustaining all creation. In God, we live, move, and have our being.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, expressed his divine potential and sought to show humankind how to express our divine potential as well. We see Jesus as master teacher of truths and as the Legacy of whom we are to exemplify in our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and actions.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit regenerates, baptizes, indwells, enlightens, and empowers all humans through prayer and meditation in order for all of humankind to live in harmony and as one universal community, as exemplified in the goal and mission of Jesus Christ.

The Nature of Humankind

We are each individual, eternal expressions of God. Our essential nature is divine and therefore inherently good. Our purpose is to express our divine potential as realized and demonstrated by Jesus. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully God expresses in and through our lives.

The Bible

The Bible is the basic textbook of Legacy Life Enrichment Center. Scripture comes alive when it is understood as a clear and helpful guide for today's experiences.  We firmly believe the Bible continues to be the spiritual resource for all of us.

Prayer and Meditation

Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives through the power of God.
