"UUCVH is a growing and welcoming community, offering a diverse spiritual landscape for an informed search for truth and meaning. We promote social justice, affirm the dignity of all people, and respect the interdependent web of all existence."
In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world--a just, loving humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled, silenced or exploited because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability.
Using reason as our guide and freedom as our method, we seek to grow in the understanding of ourselves and of our world, and to promote and serve the universal human family.
With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion -- a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. We are a "non-creedal" religion: we do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed, but instead affirm and promote the Seven Principles.
