CHURCH AND ACADEMY AT A GLANCE
Growth Starts Within
Open Arms Metaphysical Church Inc. and Open Arms Community Leaders Inc. know that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. In 2020, our organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch our church and academy.
Who Are We?
We are a community based, metaphysical church and academy who believe that the community is the backbone and foundation from which all things are birthed. We teach love for all creation and promote healing from within through mindfulness, meditation, and spiritual principles.
What is Metaphysics?
Metaphysics acknowledges and respects the beauty in ALL of God’s Creation.
Metaphysics is religion without dogma.
Metaphysics does not explore religious beliefs and laws created by man, but rather, it explores the immutable laws of nature, set by The Creator, God/Universal Presence, in the creation of the Universe.
Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that studies the ultimate nature of existence, reality, and experience without being bound to any one theological doctrine or dogma.
Metaphysics includes all religions but transcends them all.
Metaphysics is the study of ultimate cause in the Universe.
Metaphysics is the only science capable of inquiring beyond physical and human science.
~International Metaphysical Ministry
We are a metaphysical church who welcomes ALL...no matter your religious or spiritual background, race, gender, or orientation. Your personal attributes shape our communities and we value the person you are.
Our church community will launch a private academy that speaks to the minds of our youth to insipire them to become the next community leaders.
Communities are comprised of individuals with unique qualities and attributes. In order to build strong communities, each individual must focus on and strengthen self which includes mind, body, and spirit.
Individuals within a community make up the fabric of that community. The characteristics and essence of a community lies within its foundation and the growth and development of a community lies with its members. As the essence of indivduals is mind, body, and spirit; there is also a mind, body, and spirit essence of a community. Open Arms Metaphysical Church is a church that functions as a community.
The church is the body of our organization. We are a body of members who believe that The Most High is the Source of all things and through Him/Her, we experience all things. Love is the greatest commandment and with love at our core, we welcome people from all walks of life. There is no judgment here. We are community who support each other in our spiritual development as we journey to know more about who we are in Spirit. We love unconditionally as we transform ourselves from the inside, out. All are welcome!
The academy is the mind of our organization. We see every challenge as an opportunity, and our initiatives help communities be the best version of themselves. This includes having access to the best education. Open Arms Community Leaders is a private academy that has a 2023 - 2024 projected start year. It will serve grade 8 in its first year and add a grade each year to grade 12. It joins the community and education industry, through executing community service projects, providing family support and training, and educating students and families using a community school model.
Most of our efforts pertaining to our organization involve supporting values of diversity, social justice, and empowerment in communities. We believe that all members of a community should be treated fairly and justly. Our efforts entail working with other organizations to ensure the basic needs of all
members are met and there is equal opportunity for education, employment, and individual potentiality.
