UPT is a place of refuge for one and all.  A refuge is a place in which to flee to find safety and shelter.  It is our desire to be that port of refuge when the storms of life assail.  We do this by loving God and loving people.

We strive to love God by walking with Him in the purity of relationship and demonstrating His love to others.  We strive to love people by pointing them toward Jesus Christ who heals those who have been wounded, battered, and broken on life’s seas.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah.
Psalm 46:1-3 NKJV
