Unitarian Universalism is an intentionally inclusive and progressive religion that believes all people are worthy of love and that we are all deeply interconnected. It welcomes and celebrates people of all ages, religious backgrounds, spiritual beliefs, cultural origins, differing abilities, neurodiversities, gender identities, sexual orientations, economic realities, levels of education, and immigration status. Todos son bienvenidos aqui.

This is a faith that nurtures individual and shared spiritual journeys. It invites you to bring your questions and doubts, and perhaps discover some answers.

No one is going to tell you what you have to believe. We’re never going to tell you that there is only one way or book that leads to religious truth. We will encourage you to explore your own heart and mind to discover your own connection to life’s meaning and purpose. And we help one another along the way.

The Flaming Chalice is the symbol of Unitarian Universalism.

It represents the light of love and reason in all people.

Common Questions about Unitarian Universalism

What do Unitarian Universalists believe?

There are Eight Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Faith.

We affirm and promote:

  • 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 congregation

  • 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

  • Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions**

**Nationwide, Unitarian Universalist Congregations are in the process of adopting the 8th Principle at the local level. Our congregation voted to adopt the 8th Principle on May 15, 2022. The vote to adopt the 8th principle at the national level will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Association's General Assembly in Summer 2023.

What if I don’t believe in God? What if I do believe in God?

Our congregation is made up of many different spiritual beliefs. Some folks believe in a God or Higher Power, and some do not. Some individuals identify themselves as Christian, while most do not. Some are agnostic or Humanist. Others find inspiration in such traditions as Pagan/Earth-Centered, Buddhism or Judaism. Some of us are still trying to work out what exactly we believe. Our church is a great place to do just that! What we all share in common is our Unitarian Universalist morals and values, and our shared journey to nurture our spirit and help heal our world.

What is Unitarian Universalism based on?

We are a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from six sources:

  • 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 which 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

  • Jewish and Christian teachings 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
