Who We Are
We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith.
Although we share many beliefs and values, we are bound to each other by covenant–the promises that we make to each other and to the larger Life to which we belong–and affirm the right and responsibility of each individual to decide what is right and good and true.
Our Unitarian Universalist faith is a “living tradition” that draws from many sources, including human experience, reason, nature, and teachings from all of the world’s religions, and affirms seven principles that include the worth of each person, the need for justice and compassion, and the right to choose one’s own beliefs.
We are people of all ages, people of many backgrounds, and people of many beliefs. We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world.
Unitarian Universalism invites each of us to bring our whole selves–our full identities, our questioning minds, our expansive hearts–into a welcoming, inclusive, diverse, and caring religious community that nurtures our spiritual growth and calls us to live our faith through acts of justice, compassion, hope, love, and service.
Together, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door: we join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been before.
