Welcome

Whatever your background, your theology, your interests, you are welcome here. 

Beacon Unitarian Universalist Congregation (Beacon) is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association — a worldwide liberal religious movement with roots going back several centuries. The essence of this movement is to encourage the development of personal theology with social activism to work for justice and peace.

Beliefs

Unitarian Universalism welcomes people with diverse beliefs. There is a rich dialogue in our congregations about many spiritual topics. UUA.org explores some topics that newcomers are often curious about.

In addition to holding different beliefs on spiritual topics, individual Unitarian Universalists may also draw upon beliefs and inspiration from Buddhism, Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Paganism, Atheism/Agnosticism and other religious or philosophical traditions.

Our Unitarian Universalist faith has evolved through a long history, with theological origins in European Christian traditions. Today Unitarian Universalism is a non-creedal faith which allows individual Unitarian Universalists the freedom to search for truth on many paths. While our congregations uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists may discern their own beliefs about spiritual, ethical, and theological issues.

In addition to belong to the larger UUA, Beacon is a member of the Pacific Southwest District Association of UU Congregations. 

We offer religious education for children and adults as well as a broad variety of social, recreational and spiritual growth activities. We are a Welcoming Congregation. Our first Principle, respecting “the inherent worth and dignity of every person,” applies equally to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities/gender expressions.
