We as Unitarian Universalist affirm and promote the 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 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 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
- 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

- We Believe that each and every person is important.
- We Believe that all people should be treated fairly.
- We Believe that our religious communities are places where all people are accepted and where we keep on learning together.
- We Believe that everyone should have a vote about things that concern them.
- We Believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
- We Believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
- We Believe in caring for our planet earth.
