About Us


The Santa Anita Church is a New Thought spiritual community located in Arcadia, California. New Thought is an umbrella designation for churches and spiritual centers whose common thread is that a person’s individual consciousness has a powerful creative influence on their experience of the outside world, and that people draw to themselves the events and outcomes that they hold in their minds. As Jesus said, “It is done unto you as you believe.”

The Santa Anita Church teaches this Truth using The Science of Mind text by Dr. Ernest Holmes. Coupled with ties to the Bible and other spiritual texts, we teach within a Christian framework that also respects other belief systems and draws from the wisdom of many, including Native American spirituality, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and other Eastern religions. Hence our church motto: “One Spirit, Many Paths.”
