Unitarian Universalist Principles
These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
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 congregation;
- 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.
As Unitarian Universalists, we agree that:
- Every person is important and valuable.
- All people should be treated fairly and kindly.
- We should accept one another and keep on learning together.
- Each person should be free to search for what is true and right.
- All people have the right to speak out and have a say in things that matter to them.
- We should help build a peaceful, fair and free world.
- We need to take care of the earth.
