We need not worship alike to love alike.

All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church does not follow a particular doctrine or creed, but follows the Unitarian Universalist theology of radical acceptance and inclusiveness. Love and community are at the heart of each service. Ministers and guest speakers draw wisdom from the world’s religions, philosophy, literature, science, poetry and the natural world in order to deliver messages relevant to our times.

Our covenant, a promise we make to each other, unifies All Souls members across a wide variety of perspectives and beliefs. It is spoken aloud at every service.

Love is the spirit of this church, and service is its law. This is our great covenant, to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.
