Seven Principles

All member organizations of the Unitarian Universalist Association share seven principles that emphasize our values and serve as a moral guide. In keeping with the UU democratic tradition, these principles were approved at a General Assembly gathering of delegates from many churches following broad input and a careful search for consensus.

As a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association, UUNB covenants to affirm and promote the following Seven Principles:

1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
