Come As You Are

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience. The Principles are not dogma or doctrine, but rather a guide for those of us who choose to join and participate in Unitarian Universalist religious communities.

Our congregations are places where we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action by working toward fellowship and social justice in our communities and the wider world. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist (UU) is simply a matter of self-identification. Newcomers are always welcome at UU churches. Membership in local congregations is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.

We invite you to explore our website, visit us on a Sunday, come back again, and discover Unitarian Universalism!

"We come together as a community of like-spirited people having travelled many different paths to arrive here. ... Our goal is to build our spirits individually so that collectively, we can make a difference in our world."

—"Doing the Hokey Pokey with God" - homily by church member Suzanne Hickman on July 29, 2012
