Our values

We affirm and promote seven core values, which we hold as moral guides. We strive to live out these values within a living tradition of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from ancient and modern sources as diverse as poetry, science, scripture and personal experience.

1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
