Unitarian Universalist Principles & Sources of Faith

The backbone of our religious community

Unitarian Universalist 


There are seven principles that Unitarian Universalist congregations 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 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.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many 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 women and men 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.
