About Unitarian Universalists
We are united by our shared values, as expressed in Seven Principles which we hold as strong values and moral guides.
- 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.
We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
The seven principles grew out of the grassroots of our communities, were affirmed democratically, and are part of who we are.
We are diverse in our beliefs, ethnicity, history and spirituality to align in our desire to make a difference for the good. We side with love, justice, inclusivity and peace.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes.
