WHAT WE BELIEVE
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion born of the Jewish and Christian traditions. We keep our minds open to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places.
We believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason should be the final authorities in religion. In the end religious authority lies not in a book, person, or institution, but in ourselves. We put religious insights to the test of our hearts and minds.
We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. We say ours is a noncreedal religion. Ours is a free faith.
We believe that religious wisdom is ever changing. Human understanding of life and death, the world and its mysteries is never final. Revelation is continuous. We celebrate unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets, and sages throughout ages.
We afirm the worth of every person. We believe people should be encouraged to think for themselves. We know people differ in their opinions, choices, and identities, and we believe these differences should be honored.
We seek to act as a moral force in the world, believing that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. The here and now and the effects our actions will have on future generations, deeply concern us. We know that our relationships with one another, with the diverse peoples, ethnicities and nations, should be governed by justice, equity, and compassion.
The best way to get to know us, is to come, see, think,
and explore with us. A warm welcome awaits you.
All are welcome! Join us for Sunday Service, at 10:00am.
DIFFERENT PEOPLE, DIFFERENT BELIEFS, ONE FAITH
