Founded in 1954 as an offshoot of the First Unitarian Church of Wilmington, DE, the Unitarian Congregation of West Chester is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association and a part of the Joseph Priestley District of the UUA.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity. Our faith has evolved through a long history with origins in European Christian traditions. Over time, Transcendentalism and Humanism have been embraced and enfolded into our ever evolving understanding of faith. The Unitarian Universalist denomination today is the result of the 1961 consolidation of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America. To learn more about the history and evolution of our congregation, please see Our History.
While our congregations uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists are free to discern their own beliefs and formulate their own theology. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, Unitarian Universalists search for truth on many paths. All of life is a spiritual journey.
