What We Believe
As Unitarian Universalist We Believe In The Seven Principles…
which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We believe and live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
First Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
Second Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
Third Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
Fourth Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
Fifth: Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
Sixth Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
Seventh Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
As Unitarian Universalist We Believe: In The Six Sources our congregations affirm and promote:
– We believe in the Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces that create and uphold life;
– Words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion and the transforming power of love;
– Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
– Teaching of the Christian and Jewish religions which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
– Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
– Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
