The Unity Fellowship Movement was
founded, incorporated, and charted as a 501(C)(3)
non-profit religious organization in 1985. The principal
church, also known as the "Mother Church" is established
in Los Angeles, California. Our founder, Bishop Carl Bean,
envisioned spirituality as universal. The spiritual path
is eternal and traveled by all.
Jacquelyn Holland joined the Unity Fellowship Movement in 1992 when she joined the Unity Fellowship church in Brooklyn, NY. A former member of Lavender Light: The Black and People of All Colors Lesbian and Gay Gospel Choir, she served two years as assistant pastor to the Rev. Zachary Jones. After being ordained a minister in the Unity Fellowship Movement in October 1994, Rev. Holland felt she should establish a new church to further spread the liberating message of God's love and acceptance of all. Liberation In Truth was born in April 1995.
Entering into third year, we will continue to build upon the foundation that we have laid. To address the needs of our growing congregation, we have expanded our ministries to include The Open Door [for young adults 25 and under]and the Young People's Church [for children and teenagers]. We are dedicated to community outreach and sharing the joy of God's love in New Jersey.
