UPC Austin:
An Inclusive Welcoming Congregation

We strive to be a community where you can ask questions in a safe environment and be who God intends. We are committed to doing together the work necessary to embody God’s broad welcome in everything we do. Our statement of inclusivity, adopted in 2019, affirms our commitment:

University Presbyterian Church strives to embody God’s love for the diversity of creation by affirming the dignity of all persons as created in God’s image. We welcome people of all races, cultures, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and socioeconomic status in all ministries of the church.

We are a member of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians, working for the unity of the church, furthering the inclusion of LGBTQ persons, seeking understanding and reconciliation, and joining with others seeking a still more just and inclusive church.

As a member of More Light Presbyterians, we work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) people in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and in society.
