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

Helena Chapin and Mary Ann Moore adapted the UU principles for children:

  • 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.
