What We Believe
“We aspire to a faith in which our spirituality is deep, experiential, and relational, and which moves us to action.”-Reverend Peter Morales, President Unitarian Universalist Association, 2013
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion born of the Jewish and Christian traditions. We keep our minds open to the religious questions people have pondered in all times and places.
We are a covenantal faith, rather than a creedal one. We walk with one another on our spiritual paths. We join together in beloved community as we search for truth.
We believe that religious wisdom and deep truths continue to be revealed to each of us. We believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason should be the final authorities in religion.
Human understanding of life and death, the world and its mysteries, is ongoing. We celebrate unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets, and sages throughout the ages.
Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
