Are you looking for a faith that boldly proclaims God’s unfailing love for all people? A faith that accepts Jesus as Savior and holds him up as someone who shows us the heart of the Creator, as someone everyone can follow with joy and integrity — and yet a faith that does not use fear of eternal hell as a stick to force you into the fold?

Are you searching for a faith based on the premise that in the end there will be no one left behind — a faith that through this blessed hope can truly break down barriers and bring people together in a spirit of joy and “good tidings to all”?

CUA minister preaches at Thomas Potter Chapel

Rev. Jose Castillo-Bayonet, an ordained Christian Universalist minister, preaches at the 2012 CUA conference at Thomas Potter Chapel in New Jersey, the first Universalist church in the United States.

There is such a faith, and you have found it! It is called Christian Universalism. This positive and hopeful understanding of the Gospel is not something new but was in fact a prevailing belief of the Church for many years after Jesus.

In medieval times, Universalism declined and was kept alive only by a few free-thinking mystics. But after long ages of darkness, the light of Universalism was rekindled by pioneering spiritual leaders during the Reformation, and again in the 18th and 19th centuries. They rejected the teaching of eternal damnation and centered their communities of faith in their belief that the grace of God will save every single human being.

Today, increasing numbers of people across America and around the world are rediscovering this original Christian faith and are coming together to share it — with each other, and with people who have not yet heard the Good News.

We are here to proclaim this Good News of the all-loving, all-saving God who was revealed through the grace-filled ministry of Jesus. And we are here to assist you in your spiritual journey as a Christian Universalist: to help you find a place of worship where you can praise God with all your heart, where the message is uplifting, not angry and condemning; to get connected and enjoy fellowship with open-minded and compassionate people, who care more about serving one another and serving humanity than forcing them into one narrow religious view; and to work together in the true spirit of Jesus for the reconciliation of all people.

We invite you to explore the articles, videos, and resources on this website to see if Christian Universalism and the Christian Universalist Association are right for you. And if you share our beliefs and goals, we invite you to join us and become part of the Second Reformation that can transform the world in the 21st century!
