A basic principle of our Unitarian Universalist
denomination is freedom of religious belief. We do not
require assent to a particular institutional creed or
statement of faith for membership.
We believe that people should be encouraged to think
for themselves.We agree that people will differ in their
opinions and life styles and feel that these differences
should generally be honored -- for each person is the
final source of authority on his or her own life.
We hold that all persons have an obligation to seek out
personal religious truth and to follow that truth wherever
We exist to offer a warm, open, supportive community.
We want to provide a place where individuals can meet
and find accepting and understanding friends.
We look to each other for intellectual stimulation and
emotional support through all the stages and difficulties
We affirm the worth of human beings. We trust people's
ability to build their own faith.
Morgantown, West Virginia
We seek to act as a moral force in the world, believing
that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. The
here and now, and the effects that our actions will have
on future generations are what deeply concern us.
We seek to promote one universal humanity undivided
by nation, race or creed, with allegiance to the cause of
a united world community.
We know that we often fail to live up to these ideals, but
unite in the hope, that working together, we may come
closer to realizing them.
The Morgantown Fellowship's history began in 1954
when 3 or 4 families started meeting in homes. The
Fellowship was formally established on May 23, 1954,
with a set of by-laws, very similar to what we have now,
and 27 people signing the membership book.
We erected our present building in 1963, when Don
Horvath was President.

Love is the spirit of this church
Love is the Spirit of this
church, and service its law.
This is our great covenant;
To dwell together in peace,
To seek the truth in love,
And to help one another.
We are lucky to have the
assistance and wisdom of
two ministers, the Revs.
