Entrance to Unitarian Universalist Church of the Verdugo Hills (UUCVH)

Since the 1950s, we have met together in this space to share beliefs, encourage spiritual growth and pass along Unitarian Universalists’ evolving liberal religious heritage. We challenge each other into actions that enrich our lives and the world around us. We are a free-thinking, socially progressive and caring community bound by the seven basic principles that we affirm and promote.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Verdugo Hills

  • strives to build a religious community where members find comfort, intellectual stimulation and inspiration.
  • encourages members to discover and explore their own beliefs--our members’ worldviews may include theism, humanism, and agnosticism.
  • celebrates and draws from many sources of wisdom: other world religions, reason and science, earth-centered traditions, words and deeds of courageous women and men, our own intuitions.
  • teaches children guidelines for ethical behavior and helps them create lives filled with justice, peace and love.
  • values diversity of affectional orientation and racial and cultural identities, believing that through diversity we learn what it means to be human.

Mission

"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.
