Freedom of Belief
We believe that each individual is responsible for exercising his or her
own judgement in matters of religious faith.
The Discipline of Reason
We believe in a search for truth and right based on the weight of evidence,
the thoroughness of reason and the impulse of compassion.
Growth and Change
We believe that the mind and spirit grow through the quest for new truths
and new meanings. Therefore, a spirit of trust and respect for the opnions
of every person pervades our enterprise and outlook.
Community and Diversity
We believe that every aspect of the endless variety of nature is related
to every other. Not only do we value the interrelationships and those things
held in common by humankind, but also we celebrate the differences among
human beings, cultures and ideas.
