Our Creed

IMU is a ministry of the International Metaphysical Churches in the state of West Virginia. As a church ministry, IMU makes no claims regarding state or national authorization or accreditation.

  • We believe in Source Energy.
  • Source Energy is impersonal and all loving.
  • Source Energy is conscious and is the essence of all living things.
  • Source Energy expresses itself as vibration and light. This is the nature of our reality, which is ultimately an illusion.
  • The resistance to what is is the cause of all suffering. The release of resistance results in joy and ultimately ascension.
  • Humans are Source Energy manifested into physical form.
  • As Source Energy, humans are creators, imbued with the sacred power of free will and choice.
  • We are All One experiencing ourselves as individuals.
  • Source Energy cannot be destroyed and therefore we are immortal.
  • Everything in the universe is unfolding according to a divine plan even when we can’t see it.


To become an ordained minister through the International Metaphysical Churches, students must successfully complete ORD 500. Upon completion of this course, students receive a certificate of ordination from the International Metaphysical Churches. This certificate may be submitted along with your state application to become an ordained minister recognized by your state. Ordination is optional but is encouraged for all students.


The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality (US Department of Education). Traditional colleges and universities use accreditation as a measuring stick to compare their individual programs to a set of national standards provided by the professional organizations associated with the degrees being offered.

In the world of metaphysics, our professional associations are not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. As a result, metaphysical colleges and universities are not required to be accredited by the U.S. government. Students who complete courses in non-government approved programs are generally not permitted to transfer credits to US accredited schools.

Rolling Enrollment

According to our rolling enrollment policy, students may begin courses at any time. Start dates are not dictated by IMU schedules but rather by student schedules. Students are encouraged to complete the course within twelve weeks.

      Wow. Thanks for letting us know that!

      As far as cost goes, all classes except for hypnosis are $425 and you need 12 classes to earn a degree. So total cost is at $5,100. We do, of course, offer payment options and discounts under certain conditions, etc. Would you like to discuss these options in person? We can set up a time to talk.
