Our Story 
The story of All Souls Unitarian Church is the story of a Church of the Free Spirit, founded on the principles of freedom, reason, fellowship, service and character.  

It is a story of strong lay leadership.  

The church was started by people who came to Tulsa to seize the opportunities of a booming oil town. They could see that the presence of a liberal religious voice was needed for the healthy development of the community. They envisioned a congregation coming together for the worship of God and the service of humankind.  

They built a Church of the Free Spirit.  

Today more than 1,800 adults claim All Souls as their spiritual home.  

Our membership includes business, state and civic leaders, and people from all walks of life, who hold a broad spectrum of personal and political views.  

Our building often houses both sides of a controversy.  

We unite on Sunday mornings in the spirit of love and in the search for beauty, truth and good for all.  

It is a story of strong ministry.  

The congregation has sought and called young clergy who were unafraid to exercise the power and freedom of the pulpit to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable; ministers who were unafraid to speak out in the community about reproductive rights, civil rights and the rights of those who had suffered past wrongs; ministers who were and are willing to act as well as to speak prophetically.  

It is a story of unity and diversity.  

In a delicately and respectfully held balance, our congregation worships together while individually holding a broad spectrum of beliefs and unbeliefs 

We are a congregation grounded in the notion that Love is the Spirit and we are willing to engage in the personal struggles and collective labors required to keep it so for future generations.  

Each day we learn better how to celebrate what we have in common and to respect the ways in which we differ.  

We can see the dream becoming a reality.

As we approach our Centennial we can see the dream becoming reality – the church of All Souls – a church of the free spirit.
