About Us

About Us

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, whomever you love, and whatever your faith tradition, you are welcome at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia.

As Unitarian Universalists we are more interested in embodying love in the world than arguing over specific beliefs. We are a spiritual community with a call to love, justice, and reason, without one central creed.

In our congregation you will likely meet as many agnostics, atheists, humanists as you will people with Christian and Jewish backgrounds.

We recognize that creating the Beloved Community envision by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is up to all of us, that “all of us need all of us to make it“*, that loving the hell out of the world is a full-time job, and that, wherever else it may be, salvation is most readily experienced among friends and in community.

* words by the Rev. Julián Jamaica Soto
