As Unitarian Universalists, we keep our minds open regarding the religious questions with which people have always struggled. 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. Ours is a free faith, so we will not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed.
We believe that human understanding of life and death, the world, and its mysteries is never final. We celebrate unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets, and sages throughout the ages. We affirm the worth of all women and men and believe people should be encouraged to think for themselves. We know people differ in their opinions and lifestyles, and that 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 diverse peoples, races, and nations should be governed by justice, equity, and compassion.
