N.Y. Society for Ethical Culture-Concert Hall

Ethical Culture is a Humanist and Ethical movement inspired by the ideal that the supreme aim of our lives is to create a more humane society. We stand for separation of church and state. We believe acting morally does not require belief in a god. We place our faith in the demonstrated capacity of people to do wonderful things. We believe in the worth and dignity of all living beings.

We believe that all individuals have:

    * Inherent worth and dignity

    * The potential to grow and change

    * A responsibility to strive for ethical growth

    * A responsibility to treat others so as to help them realize their fullest potential

    * A responsibility to create a better world

    * A responsibility to help build an Ethical Culture community that welcomes and involves others

As an Ethical Culture community we believe that:

    * We are all part of something that transcends the individual experience

    * We have responsibilities to each other, to the Society, and to the community at large

    * We are enriched through our interconnectedness with others

    * We find confirmation and validation of our own selves and beliefs through our interactions with others

    * We derive strength through our relationships with others
