The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Duluth is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that emerged from a Jewish-Christian heritage. Our members hold a wide variety of theological views ranging from liberal Christianity to Humanism. Even with diversity, however, we agree on core values: the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equity and compassion in human relations; the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregation and in society at large; and the goal of peace, liberty, and justice within the world community.
We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
As a welcoming congregation, we welcome diversity, and celebrate the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered persons in our congregation and in the larger community.

Our congregation is also a Certified UUA Green Sanctuary Congregation . The first in Minnesota, this congregation promotes environmental and ecological standards through practice and education, and embraces our seventh principle of interconnectedness, with all that exists, and of which we are a part.
“Religious liberals put less emphasis than most people do on specific, formal beliefs; more on practical, concrete action. Their interest is in deeds, not creeds; they are not as much concerned about what a person says about religion as with what he or she does about it. They appreciate the Biblical text “Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only.”
-Waldemar Argow, Unitarian Universalist Minister, retired.
