Our UU Faith
Exploring Our Unitarian Universalist Faith
Midcoast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is founded in the liberal Unitarian Universalist faith endorsing our individual search for truth and meaning, while actively engaging in activities that are grounded in our Unitarian Universalist principles.
As a fellowship of Unitarian Universalists we covenant to affirm and promote the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA):
- 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.
The Fellowship is now officially recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Welcoming Congregation program for embracing and welcoming Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and or Transgender individuals and families.
