Principles

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.”


1st Principle:

The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

 

 

 

2nd Principle:

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;

 

 

 

6th Principle:

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

 

 

 

7th Principle:

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