About Us

UU Church of Evansville is a “non-creedal” congregation – we are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma.  We seek religious truth through personal experience, conscience and reason – not from any particular book or religious authority.  Although our historical roots are in the Judeo-Christian tradition, our faith draws on many different religious sources, and our congregation is made up of people from many different religious backgrounds and varying beliefs.

At UUCE, we are primarily concerned with how we should live, individually and collectively, so that we might become better people, partners, parents and citizens.  We believe that truth, justice, and compassion are required of us. We believe that love is better than hatred, understanding is better than prejudice, and that if there is ever to be a better world, people of widely differing beliefs will have to work together to build it.  This means we must learn how to communicate and cooperate with people whose beliefs differ from ours.  We are united in our acceptance of diverse spiritualities and our commitment to making the world a better place for everyone.

We value worship, fellowship, transcendence, community, and personal transformation and strive to provide a caring, supportive and safe place where our spirits can be rekindled and renewed so that we can better serve one another and our community, near and far.

One Church. Many Beliefs.

Diversity…a Welcoming Congregation

A wide variety of beliefs and religious backgrounds are represented among our members and friends of the church.  Our members are free to practice what they believe.  We are often asked what holds us together in such a diverse atmosphere.  Seven guiding principles set forth by the UUA bind us together.  Despite our disparate beliefs, Unitarians share more values than any other denomination.  At UUCE, you will find Christians, Jews, pagans, agnostics, and many other belief systems represented.  Additionally, UUCE is a home for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people. All are welcome at UUCE. Read more about our Welcoming Congregation Policy.

A Safe Congregation 

Our commitments, as Unitarian Universalists, to the inherent dignity and worth of every person and to justice and compassion, compel us to create a safe environment that protects children and youth from harm and promotes their spiritual growth.  Official Safe Congregation Policy

Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalists seek to be whole human beings.  In gratitude for the wondrous gift of life, we seek to be compassionate servers.  Recognizing that human vision is imperfect and human knowledge incomplete, we seek to open our minds and hearts to the wisdom to be found in world religions and the experiences of those who have gone before us.
