Our Purpose & Goals
For now and the future...
In addition to the annual membership events we sponsor, such as the General Membership & Study Meeting in March, we also host the annual Indiana Dunes Picnic as a celebration of Jesus’ birthday on the Sunday nearest to August 21st. We partner with Urantia Foundation and First Society of Chicago to sponsor and host the Christmas Party held in early December each year at Urantia Foundation.

In 2004 Greater Lake Michigan Urantia Association (GLMUA) hosted the UAI International Conference, and again GLMUA answered the call to serve as local hosts of the UAI 2011 LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM held at Techny Towers in Chicago. Since 2007, we committed ourselves to sponsor and host a yearly in-depth Fall Study Session in Chesterton, Indiana when not involved in hosting a larger conference. In 2012, GLMUA proudly presented Fall Study Session 4 "The Faith of Jesus ~ The Religion of Supremacy".

We prioritize the assistance to individual readers in finding study partners, and encouraging the growth of new study groups. Through experience we have found that group study is far more enriching and enlightening than individual study, and it is key in the growth and development of teachers and leaders which are needed for the anticipated spiritual reawakening as we transcend from the long ages of darkness and materialism, to the promised future progressive ages of "light and life".

We strive to maintain a website that will serve to educate, strengthen and unite our community. We also support Urantia Foundation's efforts to translate The Urantia Book into many languages The effort to reach those who are seeking for truth all over the world is of prime importance to all UB believers. We believe a personal relationship with God is the most precious of all human experiences.

We embrace a philosophy of truth and service to mankind, and share Jesus’ commitment to respect each individual’s right to choose his own religion and to follow his own path to God through faith. We believe that The Urantia Book is a divine revelation, a bestowal of truth given in modern times when humans are asking many questions about God, and trying to understand how our lives and destinies fit into His eternal purpose and plan. If a person is searching for truth, it will be found. The Urantia Book is available and waiting for all truth hungry mortals to discover it.

The Urantia Book P.1745 "The issues of life and death are being set before you--the sinful pleasures of time against the righteous realities of eternity. Even now you should begin to find deliverance from the bondage of fear and doubt as you enter upon the living of the new life of faith and hope. And when the feelings of service for your fellow men arise within your soul, do not stifle them; when the emotions of love for your neighbor well up within your heart, give expression to such urges of affection in intelligent ministry to the real needs of your fellows."
