Who We Are
Unitarian Universalism is an intentionally creedless religion with many centuries of history.
Rather than provide a single set of beliefs, UUs believe that each person has both the right and the responsibility to develop their own beliefs in matters of religion, and that we do this best in the context of a nurturing and challenging community.
UU does not offer THE answer, rather it encourages individuals to question and develop their own framework of beliefs within a loving atmosphere.

What We Do
We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers.
We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good.
We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
Our Seven Principles
We affirm and promote 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.
