2.) Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3.) Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth;

4.) A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5.) The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process;

6.) The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

7.) Respect for the interdependent web of existence of which we are all part.

Unitarian Universalism 6 Sources:

1.) 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;

2.) 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;

3.) Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;

4.) Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;

5.) 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;

6.) 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.

Unitarian Universalism does not impose a particular statement of belief. Our religious heritage is built on freedom of belief, tolerance, and reason.
