UPHI is honored to be a part of the Association of Communities formed by the Agape International Spiritual Center. Together, we share a belief in universal principles and are committed to evolving this consciousness worldwide.
From Agape about the Association:
“How can we shed light on humanity’s potential to evolve into a new way of relating that gives rise to an individual and collective realization of our interconnectedness and purpose of existence?” This was, for us, the question that birthed the possibility of creating a gathering of communities that would go much farther and deeper than organizational brand name loyalty, marketing campaigns, or increasing the dissemination of our respective teachings. In other words, to allow each associate member to maintain the uniqueness of their individual vision and mission yet collaborate with other communities to benefit from their respective explorations, discoveries, and successes.
The beauty of our visioning and dialoguing was how it led to the realization that no one spiritual path or practice has the final answer to life’s divine mysteries, that humanity’s limitless possibilities transcend any one point of view. Coming together as an association of spiritual aspirants has the potential to illuminate new horizons for us all, eliminating competition and encouraging collaboration as an association of shared values and vision.
When a movement gathers power, there is a grace-filled energy which causes its vision and mission to flourish. In his book, Where Good Ideas Come From, author Steven Johnson writes, “When one looks at innovation in nature and in culture, environments that build walls around good ideas tend to be less innovative in the long run than more open-ended environments.” Our intention is for the Agape Association of Communities to be an open-ended environment of inclusivity, creativity, innovation, and evolutionary progress.
The United Palace House of Inspiration is an all-inclusive, spiritual community that supports the individual and collective life of the soul and spirit within every human being. We celebrate the many expressions of God represented in the many faiths and cultural traditions upon our shared planet in order to inspire us all to be who we are meant to be.
Who is Rev. Ike?
Rev. Frederick Eikerenkoetter, better known to millions as REV. IKE, "The Success and Prosperity Preacher," has been Minister, Teacher, Motivator, Evangelist, Counselor, and Pastor to millions of people, for over 40 years. Rev. Ike dared to go where most theologians, Bible teachers, and preachers would not. As an evangelist, on TV, radio, and at mass meetings, he had the "nerve" to PREACH "Prosperity NOW!" — long before it became popular to do so. He was dismissed by some "mainstream" and "fundamentalist" people, but now many famous preachers, teachers and authors sound just like Rev. Ike — teaching prosperity!
Rev. Ike's Science of Living Ministry began with only a handful of faithful supporters. He taught these people how to get turned on to life. He showed them how to BE, to DO, and to HAVE all the good that they desire through the Presence and Power of God, Infinite Good, within everyone. Since then, Rev. Ike has become a Spiritual advisor to millions of people of all races and religions — and even to those with NO religion. He teaches that the Presence of God-in-you is your Unlimited Resource of Good.
Rev. Ike attracts people from all walks of life: ordinary people, the rich, the poor, the famous, movie stars, political figures, sports champions — even priests and rabbis! These people have received Good Health, Healing, Joy, Love, Success, Prosperity, Good Fortune, and More Money through applying his teachings in their lives.
Rev. Ike transistioned in June, 2009, however his spirit and his teachings are alive and well on the internet. To watch his dynamic, life-changing videos on YouTube, click here.
Rev. Ike Speaks on:
"I greatly value the Bible and interpret it psychologically, rather than theologically, to teach the individual positive self-awareness. One of my favorite passages is, "As a man thinks so is he." (Proverbs 23:07) I consider the Bible to be the greatest book of spiritual psychology ever written. Using my practical Mind Science techniques, I teach the individual to build an ideal self-image of how he or she would like his/her life and circumstances to be...by visualizing these images in the mind, and applying certain principles, an individual can actually bring these things into being. As the saying goes, 'If your mind can conceive it, then you can achieve it.'"
"My philosophy may be described as self-image psychology. The ultimate goal is to teach the individual to be master of his/her own mind and affairs by changing his/her own self-image and attitude. Through positive self-awareness, the individual can change the conditions and circumstances in his or her own life. I teach the individual that they can BE what they want to be, DO what they want to do, and HAVE what they want to have, through the Presence and Power of God, which is in each person."
The Intent of My Teachings:
"The intent of my teachings is to deal head-on with people's problems, fears, superstitions, and negative thinking - and to help them become aware that the "GOD-IN-YOU" is greater, and gives the Power to overcome. The intent is to motivate people into the kind of positive thinking and faith in action, which produce Good Health, Healing, Joy, Love, Success, Prosperity, Good Fortune, and More Money. Over the years, I have seen many people turn their minds, thinking, and faith around, and have miraculous results! This is our intent and joy!"
The People Who Follow My Teachings:
"I'm not trying to gather followers unto myself. It has never been my purpose to herd the masses into the folds of organized religion. My purpose is to bring the individual to an awareness of his own in-dwelling Divinity and to believe in the God within. When a person learns to think of him/herself positively and correctly, then he/she can become independent. I'm trying to get people of all races and religions to believe in themselves so correctly and so positively, that they can be independent spiritually, mentally, and economically."
