Who We Are as a Liberal Church

We are a liberal church comprised of courageous, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history, and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.

How we serve others

At the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills, we are standing on the side of love, working for social justice. We believe that Black Lives Matter and we honor gender diversity.  We gather for worship, events, and more – even if it is virtually in our Pittsburgh North Hills community.

How we support one another

Small groups and having fun are important to us.  At the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills in Pittsburgh, we believe as we come together as a liberal church community we need to have fun and support in our small group programs and large group celebrations.

What We Believe

We believe in religious freedom and the right and responsibility of individuals to explore what they truly believe to be good and true and beautiful. Unitarian Universalism upholds the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and we encourage each other on our spiritual journeys. We are a creedless tradition in which participation and membership in a congregation are not contingent upon one’s assent to a particular formulation or understanding of “The Truth.” Rather we covenant to walk together as we worship, discover, explore and seek to deepen and apply our commitments and beliefs to the realities and practicalities of life in the 21st century.

In our Sunday worship services and religious education opportunities for children and adults, we draw upon the wisdom of many religions and cultures. Buddhism and Christianity, Judaism and Earth-centered spiritualities, religious humanism, and Islamic mysticism all are grist for the soul’s mill. All are human expressions of people’s encounter with the divine, the meaningful, the core.”

Covenant versus Creed

A covenant gives authority to shared intention. A creed creates us and them. A covenant invites a relationship. A creed is a prescription that must be relied on. A covenant relies on the treasures of shared truth.

As members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills, we covenant that:

We will support our Church community by being welcoming, kind, and inclusive.

Remembering our mutual responsibilities, we will enter into any conflict in a positive way, speaking with people directly, without divisiveness, honoring boundaries, always assuming good intentions.

We will listen by being honest, open-minded, respectful and compassionate.

We covenant to live our shared UU faith by walking together in the spirit of love.

Come visit us to see the difference between creed and covenant in action.  You will find that you will never have to pretend to believe something ever again.
