Our Mission

For every individual searching for spiritual meaning, Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship provides a welcoming and caring religious community dedicated to diversity of thought, social and environmental justice, and peace for all.

The Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship board of trustees formally adopted this mission statement on September 13, 2015.

Our Covenant

We, the members of the Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, covenant to provide a caring community that nurtures and respects the worth and dignity of each person, recognizes the interdependence of all living things, supports the individual in the search for spirituality and the exploration of the mysteries of life, and extends itself into the world in which we live.

Our Affirmation

Love is the spirit of this church, and service is our law; this is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.
James Vila Blake, 1894

James Vila Blake (1842–1925) was a Unitarian minister. He wrote for this affirmation for the church he served in Evanston, Illinois, in 1894. It was adopted by the Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in June, 2015.
