The Beloved Community

The term “Beloved Community” was popularized by Dr. Martin Luther King in the 1960’s. These same concepts also apply to who we are at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Corpus Christi.

The spiritual community freely gathers to live out a shared ministry.

Every human being is sacred and is called to the tasks and joys of love.

We do not limit the truth of God (even to the word “God”),
but live in openness and belief in human freedom and dignity.

We celebrate the gift of life, and join in taking on the sufferings of a fragile world.

We are this generation’s bearers of an eternal message that truth
must grow, enlarge, and glow in creative freedom.

Revelation has not been sealed. It is lived anew in every heart,
including your own. And through our transformed hearts, awakened souls
and acts of love emerges the Beloved Community.
