First Unitarian Church is a liberal religious community that encourages and supports each of its members in their search for personal religious truth and meaning. In our services, you will find no statement of doctrine, no creed of belief, to which members must subscribe. For us, religion is ultimately not about what we think; it is about how we live our lives.
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe there is no one right way to lead a religious life. For this reason, we encourage our members to draw inspiration and wisdom from all the world’s great faiths, and through a combination of personal reflection and direct experience, shape a personal faith. We call ours a freely chosen faith. For Unitarian Universalists, the individual is the ultimate source of religious authority.
What we do share in common is our commitment to the religious journey and to the health and well-being of the world community. Ours is a “covenantal tradition”, and our covenant—or promise—to one another is to be engaged and to be faithful as we walk together on our journey.
