Charles Sherlock Fillmore (August 22, 1854 — July 5, 1948), born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, founded Unity, a church within the New Thought movement, with his wife, Myrtle Page Fillmore, in 1889. He became known as an American mystic for his contributions to metaphysical interpretations of Biblical scripture.


Download a Certificate of Ordination of Charles Fillmore, dated December 1, 1890. This document was sent to me by Rev. Michael Schoonover of Unity Way Church in Vista, California. He obtained it from the website. Rev. Michael notes that the certificate is signed by Emma Curtis Hopkins and Annie E. Rix. This indicates that Charles Fillmore was a student of not only Emma Curtis Hopkins, but also a student of Annie Rix (later Militz).
