What are the doctrines and teachings of the ULC?
Posted by Brother Kevin, Last modified by Violet Lucas on 17 July 2013 11:49 AM
There is just one doctrine in the Universal Life Church:

Do only that which is right.

Each person bears the responsibility to peacefully determine what is right, and to refrain from interfering with the rights of others.

We stand for absolute freedom of religion in regard to peaceful practices.

This doctrine does not deny any person the freedom to peacefully choose their path.

What you believe is what matters most. Believe it with all your heart, while continuing to grow in your pursuit of truth and righteousness.

We believe you are ordained already, by God. However, the government does not accept ordination from God, so the Universal Life Church makes it possible for you to become ordained in the sight of the government, and to pursue your own beliefs and ministry, according to the dictates of your heart.

ULC ministers follow a wide variety of spiritual paths, some of them are even bizarre or offensive. The Universal Doctrine does not conflict with any peaceful belief system, nor attempt to control the beliefs of others, including the church ministers. However anything you hear beyond "Do only that which is right", is not Universal Doctrine, it is simply the beliefs of an individual. It does not matter if that person is the founder of the church, the host of a web site, or a derelict on Skid Row. All are equal in this church.

The ULC is a real church, and very sincere in its mission. Some ULC ministers are not sincere, but we do not judge their intent. The ULC will ordain all who ask, without cost, for life, and without question of faith. The church has been doing this since it began in 1959, and has grown steadily through the years.. Today, there are ministers and congregations around the globe. ULC International Headquarters is in Modesto, California, housed in an historic church complex. Services are held there each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
