Who Are Unitarian Universalists?

Our religious tradition originated out of Christianity. However, we now define ourselves more inclusively, celebrating a wide variety of religious traditions and perspectives. Our religious philosophy is grounded in an affirmation of the worth and dignity of all human beings and a belief that life should be celebrated as a sacred gift.

We trust people’s ability to determine their own faith and we believe people should be encouraged to think for themselves. This freedom of belief is a basic principle of Unitarian Universalism. We do not require assent to any creed or statement of faith before a person can join us.

“Religion” is commonly defined among us as that which unites human beings and gives meaning to our lives. We honor the importance of community and celebrate the redeeming power of a relationships. Indeed it is in the midst of relationships with each other and the wonders of the natural world that most of us have experienced “The Sacred.” One does not hear the word “God” in our midst as often as in other religious communities because our opinions about theology radically differ. Some believe in a supreme being or power. Others take an agnostic or non-theist perspective of existance. Yet all of us find common ground around a more “humanistic” search for meaning, beauty, justice, and joy. It is this search that unites us and motivates our journey together.

A diverse, caring community, nurturing our members in their quest for spiritual growth, and living our faith in service to the larger community.
