At First Unitarian Portland, our passion stems from deeply held convictions moving us to seek meaning and relationship.  As a spiritual community, and as people who choose to follow their spiritual path in genuine and meaningful ways, we yearn for a transformed world. We recognize faith without works is empty.

We draw upon a long heritage of social activism. Since our founding in 1866, our community’s leadership has been instrumental in establishing many of Portland’s cherished civic institutions, and we continue to provide progressive leadership today.

We seek common places where we can grow as a community, and work for a more just and compassionate world. And, our vision and message is carried beyond Portland and into the wider world.

Ours is a free religious faith. We embrace the rich diversity of beliefs weaving through the fabric of our contemporary world. These, in turn, inform our rich schedule of programs, events, and activities throughout the year.

First Unitarian Portland is a dynamic community of individuals who share a spiritual journey. We welcome you to join us.

“We need not think alike to love alike.” – Francis David (1510 – 1579)
