Mission and Vision
To welcome all.
To lead with love.
To embrace hope.
To cultivate community.
To challenge assumptions.
To face our biases and prejudices
with clear eyes.
To spark positive change within
ourselves and in our communities.
To act in ways that help move the
arc of the universe toward justice.
Our Vision: We will leverage love as a force for positive action.
It will start in our congregation. Our members will challenge
their own assumptions. Examine their biases. And endeavor to love
not only themselves, but the world, fully and without condition. By
engaging this work within our congregation, we gain insights and
skills to take beyond our walls.
It will reverberate through the community. Our church
will perform service and practice advocacy in our community. We
will become the Indianapolis church most known for standing up
for, and giving a voice to, interfaith inclusion, anti-racist policies,
women’s and reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and climate
It will find its way around the world. While All Souls
Indianapolis members may leave our congregation as they move
on to new cities, they will be prepared to put love into meaningful,
positive action in their new communities, practicing love and
advocating for justice wherever they go.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
We are Unitarian Universalist and Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, atheist and agnostic, believers in God, and more.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith. Get involved!
Building the Beloved Community
