About Unitarian Universalism
Our Mission ~ The Unitarian Universalists of Gettysburg join together as a religious community that inspires the mind and spirit, honors religious freedom, and embraces diversity. Its members minister to each other with love and work for a just society.
Unitarian Universalism is a faith tradition that believes in the worth and dignity of every person. Spiritually, we do not all believe the same things and so we welcome seekers of all faith traditions (or none) to come together with us in community. Together we affirm and promote 8 Principles and Purposes:
- 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 congregations;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations 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.
- Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.
