One Spirit Ministries (aka God’s Church) Seminary and Study Programs
One Spirit Ministries (AKA God's Church) offers two self-paced, self-study programs by correspondence or email or online:
Metaphysics Program (Spiritual Mastery Level I and Practical Spirituality 100) ($250 Donation)
Seminary - Ministerial Program (Spiritual Mastery Level II & III and Practical Spirituality 200-300) ($250 Donation)
The metaphysics program is a pre-requisite to the ministerial program. Both programs include a certificate of completion and satisfy many of the course requirements for Emerson Theological Institute which offers:
· Bachelor of Religious Studies
· Master of Religious Studies
· Doctor of Religious Studies
· Doctor of Divinity
· Practitioner of Religious Science (New Thought) Credentials
· Minister of Religious Science (New Thought) Credentials
We are also a field training center under the auspices of the World Federation of Practical Christianity - Fillmore Seminary and will make referrals to same on your behalf when requested.
The ministerial study program fosters spiritual learning and Self-Realization through Universal, God-Christ Consciousness, Realization and a life centered in that consciousness. God-Christ Consciousness is a state of being, not a state of becoming. We "walk what we talk" in every aspect of our life. This means perceiving both your inner and the external worlds metaphysically and spiritually. It means finding your own answers to the great metaphysical questions: To know why you are here, where you came from, what your purpose is, and what will happen to you in the end. This means understanding and demonstrating the interconnectedness between all life forms and ourselves. This means acceptance of the Law of One. This means that -
· Our thoughts, speech or actions neither hurt, harm nor injure anyone or anything;
· Our actions are performed skillfully and out of selfless love; and
· The fruits of our good actions are surrendered to God along with our Egos.
This means realizing God while still alive, here on planet Earth, and sharing that God/Christ Consciousness with others through unconditional love and selfless service to God and them. It means seeing the similarities, not the differences between people. It means friendship and love towards those who are happy; compassion towards those who are suffering; happiness at seeing others being virtuous and spiritual; and indifference towards weakness, stupidity, and evil in others while helping out of compassion and love.
The purpose behind this Ministerial Study Program is to prepare those called for a Universal Ministry under God's Church. The study process is designed to produce graduates who are spiritually and functionally equipped to begin the practice of a metaphysical/spiritual ministry and to perform a full range of ecclesiastical/pastoral services to members of a universal or interfaith congregation. Prerequisites: Must successfully complete the Metaphysics Study Program.
For each program students will receive a complete package containing the syllabus, reading assignments, and study questions. Completed question sheets must be returned to God’s Church with over 70% correct answers to receive a certificate of completion. A research paper on the same topic may be submitted to compensate for topics unsuccessfully completed. In lieu of answering specific questions provided below, we will accept an explanation of 5 key points in your own words for each chapter of a given books. Those completing the ministerial program may request ordination when submitting their final answers.
The cost is based on a love donation; however students are asked to donate an amount adequate to cover our direct costs (approx. $250 minimum for material and labor). Students are responsible for providing their own books; however, some books may be purchased through our bookstore.
