Our Purpose Statement

We seek to create a world of mutual thriving for all beings, where everyone has enough and no one has to be afraid. Together we strive to build this beloved community, growing in wisdom, care, justice, service, and wonder; open to All.

Our Covenant

With courage we say:
We are a people of faith and hope.
Together we covenant:
To strive to become our better selves;
To honor both the critical mind and the generous heart;
To prove that diversity need not mean divisiveness;
And to respond to systems of violence and oppression
With the power of a love beyond belief.

Our Faith

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to find their own spiritual path. Our faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Our congregations are places where we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action by helping to make our communities and the world a better place.

Unitarian Universalism is a theologically diverse religion in which we support one another in our search for truth and meaning. We have historic roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, but today individual Unitarian Universalists may identify as Atheist, Agnostic, Buddhist, Humanist, Pagan, or with other philosophical or religious traditions.

We promote reason and tolerance in our communities and embrace a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. As members of a non-creedal religious tradition, we Unitarian Universalists are encouraged to discern our own beliefs about different spiritual topics.
