We are a liberal religious community united in our mission to inspire spiritual growth, care for each other and our community, seek truth and act for justice. We are guided not by a creed but by shared values. These values include love, compassion, service, justice and truth. We also believe strongly in individual freedom of belief and we encourage our members to develop a personal theology that is meaningful and true for them. We are guided by our core values as reflected in our Seven Principles.
