What UUs Believe
We come to this Fellowship from many religious backgrounds, or none at all, bringing and sharing freely our thoughts and experiences in a community that is warm, welcoming and respectful. From our fearless sharing have come some generally accepted values that bind us together and help us lead better, more satisfying lives:
- We believe that people are inherently good and that doubting and questioning are healthy responses to doctrines, creeds and dogma.
- We are continually nourished by this community as we share the joys and sorrows that come with being human.
- Together and individually we work for a more just, compassionate world.
We frequently remind ourselves of the seven guiding principles we adopted as a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA):
- 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 congregations
- 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.
We are Unitarian Universalists with minds that think, hearts that love, and hands that are ready to serve.
