LIFE! WE ARE ONE CHURCH!
The ULC has thousands of congregations
and all are parts of the one church, like the hand and eye are

or any other party. The Universal Life Church is strictly neutral,
it takes no side and only helps those that do right.

to fill out. Those 3 people must sign. Mail it back to Headquarters
and we will record it in our files the day you receive it. We
will send you a congregation # and a beautiful certificate. The
