What IUA is Not
Click here to read it on the IUA website**

"The IUA should not be confused with the spiritual fellowship of the kingdom of heaven, even though it is intended to foster that fellowship. IUA is not a religious organization, is not associated with any religion, and is not a competitor of any religion, even though it is comprised of individual religionists. IUA has no creeds, dogmas, priests, rituals, or holy books. IUA welcomes people of all faiths, races, and nationalities.

"IUA is not designed to carry the teachings of The Urantia Book to planetary culture in its own name nor to be a direct agent of change in religious, political, social, or economic institutions. However, individuals who are engaged in all sorts of creative enterprises may be nourished by the interaction provided by the IUA. Where individuals are always free to express their own views as their own views, IUA as a group has no opinions to express on religious, political, economic, or social issues. Its focus is to remain on The Urantia Book and its teachings."

Finding Readers in Florida
Click here to read it on the USUA website**

"In the United States and Puerto Rico, International Urantia Associations are growing because Urantia Book readers want to be part of an organization that appreciates the work of Urantia Foundation and supports the "Declaration of Trust Creating Urantia Foundation." Such is the case in Florida.

"The Urantia Association of Florida, under the leadership of Dick Ziglar, strives to find readers who share their basic beliefs regarding essential ideals. They desire to maintain unity, harmony, and solidarity within the organization. 'It only makes sense to bring compatible people into your organization,' says Dick. 'It makes little sense to allow individuals to infiltrate a group who have hidden agendas or causes that are not in concert with the main body of the group.'

"And they are clear about who they want and who they do not want in their group. We do not allow Fellowship members/sympathizers in our society, and neither do we allow channelers or those who would compromise the teachings of the Urantia Book, people who, for example, still believe in reincarnation or believe that Jesus was on the same level as Buddha, Confucius, etc.

" 'We never entertain a mixture of philosophies,' he says, 'such as studying Urantia Book one hour and A Course In Miracles the next hour. Everyone in our society is exclusively devoted to the dissemination and teachings of one book at our study groups and meetings. We consider ourselves a well-unified group and as such we don't even want 'fence straddlers' in our organization.' "
