We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

* 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 congregation
* A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
* The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregation 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.

The Unitarian Universalist faith draws from six sources:

* Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.
* Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.
* Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.
* Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
* Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
* Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
