The Doctrine of this Ministry that we "Do what is right, live fruitful lives, be true to ourselves and the God each of us worship, while causing no harm to others, and accept the individual's right to worship as they see fit within the laws of their respective countries." Though our Founders were originally ordained through the Universal Life Church and still maintain good standing with them, we founded the Universal Ministries independently of that church in order to be a truly independent nondenominational church that complies with the laws of all States. With members sharing in several denominations and faiths we created the Universal Ministries to encompass all beliefs. We build this church through our spiritual sharing, that others may find the wonders of religious enlightenment.
We acknowledge that spiritual growth comes from finding the truth in our individual ways throughout life. Each of us must find our own Holy Grail. The Universal Ministries is willing to share with everyone that wishes the benefits of our organization. Requests within our articles and doctrines will be honored, and you will be legally ordained within them. We invite our members to contribute to our weekly sermons and programs.
Requests may be made online or through postal mail with actual ordination being granted through the Milford, Illinois church, though you do not have to be present as you grant us your permission to hold a defacto ceremony on your behalf, followed by electronic return proclamation email to all that provide an email address.
