We awaken the mind and spirit through transformation. As a center of universal spirituality, we celebrate the divinity within the individual, inspire the expression of love within community, and redirect the collective consciousness toward the light-led path.

Rev. Frederick Eikerenkoetter

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 preached "Prosperity NOW!" — long before it became popular to do so. Rev. Ike transitioned in July 2009, however his spirit and his teachings are alive and well on the internet. Rev. Ike’s Legacy Library houses a large collection of his memorabilia and artifacts, and is located at the United Palace. For visits, call for an appointment at 212-568-6700, Ext. 226.
