About Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalist history traces its roots to the earliest days of Christianity, growing up through the liberal Protestant tradition. Our roots are especially deep in American history.  Unitarians emphasized the unity of God and the goodness of human nature, while the Universalists emphasized the goodness of God and the salvation of all people. We are committed to living our values in deeds rather than creeds, grounding our lives on seven guiding principles for ethical action:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person.

  • Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.

  • Acceptance of each other and encouragement to spiritual growth.

  • The free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

  • The right of conscience and the use of democratic process.

  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.

  • The interdependent web of existence, of which we are part.

 

We welcome the various religious and philosophical views of our members and invite persons with diverse life experiences and cultural backgrounds to join our community. We draw from many sources and believe direct experience of mystery and wonder is affirmed in all cultures of the world:

  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men

  • Wisdom from the world's religions that inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life

  • Jewish and Christian teachings

  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason

  • Earth centered and indigenous spiritual beliefs
