Most religions work to get people into heaven. Unitarian Universalists work to get heaven into people.
Church of the Larger Fellowship
Babson Park, Florida
We help each other in our search for God or the sacred, even though we realize that each person's vision of God or the sacred is different. We believe in the importance of individual conscience, spiritually and socially, as well as the responsibility towards the community and creation that comes with that freedom.
Being a Unitarian Universalist means belonging to a community that accepts and understands doubts of the divine and the search for truth without imposing an unrealistic doctrine with a promise of unnecessary salvation.
As an institution, Unitarian Universalism is concerned with this life and what can be done to make it better for the most people. In the theological or spiritual realm of the unprovable, it's do-it-yourself: Your responsibility is to determine for yourself what speaks to you and what you need to believe.
