"The world needs Unitarian Universalism now more than ever. Through our actions and words, we aspire to live our seven principles thereby transforming ourselves and others. Holding each other accountable in a community of love, forgiveness and support, we forge the future by honoring the Unitarian Universalist prophets of the past. I cherish the opportunity to walk with others who have made a commitment to help heal a hurting and unjust world."

What is Unitarian Universalism?
If you'd like to get a better idea of what Unitarian Universalism is and whether our way of responsibly searching for truth and meaning might be for you, this welcome written by our Minister Emeritus, Rev. Dr. John M. Higgins, gives a quick preview:
"Welcome to this place.
This is a place where no revealed truths are promoted and no scripture or human being accepted as infallible. It is a place for searching for truth, but we are believers.
We believe in intellectual freedom, we believe in justice, we believe in compassion, and for concern for each other and for the whole world. We believe in commitment to those ideals which make us active in the struggle for human dignity.
We are Unitarian Universalists."
