Saltwater Church, a Unitarian Universalist congregation, is a growing, thriving, welcoming liberal religious community serving all of South King County.
As Unitarian Universalists, we seek wisdom and inspiration from many sources, including all the religions of the world, literature, the arts, and history as well as the teachings of science. However, we affirm that individual experience and individual conscience are the best authority for a person’s beliefs.
Because of this, we also value individual freedom of belief, practicing humility about our own beliefs, practicing tolerance toward others’ beliefs, and being open to new ideas.
As a result, a diversity of beliefs exist among us. Nevertheless, we share a commitment to nurturing the spiritual growth of one another and the common good of the world we share.
We strive to live our lives according to the values of compassion, connection, awe, gratitude, forgiveness, acceptance, trust and commitment to worthy goals.
We strive to create a world that respects the worth, dignity, and potential of every person, the diversity of humanity, liberty and equality, democracy, peace, and the natural world of which we are a part.
We also believe that the religious community we share helps us to live more fully and deeply than we might otherwise.
