Unitarian Universalist Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to 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.

  • We believe each and every person is important.
  • We believe all people should be treated fairly.
  • In our congregations, all people are accepted and we learn together.
  • We believe each person is free to search for what is true and right in life.
  • Everyone deserves a vote about the things that concern them.
  • We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
