UU Principles & mission
We promote the free exchange of ideas, while bridging differences.
We foster personal, spiritual, and intellectual exploration.
We care for one another and provide mutual support.
We act for social justice and live our values in the broader community.
We are a welcoming and supportive community with open minds and loving hearts that provides spiritual nourishment, promotes free religious thought, and works for a more just world.
Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. They are:
- 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.
These seven principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) grew out of the grassroots of our tradition, were affirmed democratically, and are part of who we are.
