Fillmore Theological College


Fillmore Theological College is the educational arm of one of the new Unity denominations. Begun as an alternative to Unity Village.
Divine Science School offers inhouse denominational training

Practical Christianity is one of the newer Unity denominations of New Thought. Founded by Rev. Kathy Bishop, it has moved far beyond his roots in Unity. Bishop has moved on to Buddhist Studies but she did speak at a recent INTA event.

Fillmore College provides programs designed for Personal Development - Spiritual Growth - Professional Preparation.

Degrees Include: AA, BS, MS, and Doctorate

Fillmore Theological College is "established for the purpose of providing religious studies of the Unity influence in accordance with the educational philosophy and legacy of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore co-founders of the Unity Movement."

"We are Christian in nature and staunchly support the teachings and example of Jesus Christ."

Thus "their programs are designed to be challenging, transformative and spiritually based in Christian principle."

"The Conference on Practical Christianity was founded in July of 2006 as the result of a meeting held in Greeneville, Tennessee. The purpose of the meeting was to devise a plan to preserve the legacy of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. It was also reasoned that because we are primarily an educational movement with Jesus Christ central to our teaching our responsibility was to base our teachings and tenets in Christianity.

Although we are based in Christianity this does not mean that we do not honor and respect the pioneers and giants who were the beginnings of New Thought. Phineas Quimby, Mary Baker Eddy, Earnest Holmes, and others are among the innovators and metaphyicians we recognize as contributors."

One of the objectives of Fillmore Theological College is to make it affordable for anyone who wishes to achieve a more thorough educational background in the Unity tradition. Certainly there are enrollment expenses, web site online costs and administrative outlay that require a minimum of contribution from the student. However, these costs do not mean the student should focus on financial obligation and not on learning. We have attempted to set tuition costs at a minimum.

There is a One-Time set up and enrollment fee of $100.00

Each course represents 3 credit hours toward graduation and the cost is $39.50 per course.
