Religion Without Dogma
We offer a church where there is freedom to develop your own religious philosophy & find fellowship in a caring and thoughtful religious community.

Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson's belief in freedom of thought and freedom of belief are manifest in the many Unitarian principles our founding fathers included in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were important Unitarian philosophers and ministers.

As a member church of the UUA, the Unitarian Church of Barneveld ascribes to the Unitarian Universalist Principles:
   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 reasonable search for truth and meaning.
  The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and 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.
   We are a Welcoming Congregation

"Unitarian Universalist history is full of interesting personalities going back to ancient times. Rev.
