- About Us
The Urantia Book Fellowship is the continuation of the Forum, the social organization of believers which reviewed The Urantia Book prior to its original publication and formed Urantia Brotherhood. The name was changed to The Urantia Book Fellowship in 1990. We have been growing since 1955 as an independent, international spiritual communion of believers devoted to the dissemination of The Urantia Book and the study of its teachings. There is no official doctrine, viewpoint, or belief system promulgated by the Fellowship. We seek to coordinate the efforts of all readers to study The Urantia Book, to grow spiritually, to foster community, and to participate in the world-wide spread of the book and its teachings.
The purposes of The Fellowship are the study and dissemination of the teachings of The Urantia Book; the promotion, improvement, and expansion among the peoples of the world of the comprehension and understanding of Cosmology and the relation of the planet on which we live to the Universe, of the genesis and destiny of Man and his relation to God, of the life and teachings of Jesus, and the inculcation and encouragement of the realization and appreciation of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man -- in order to increase and enhance the comfort, happiness, and well-being of Man, as an individual and as a member of society, by fostering a religion, a philosophy, and a cosmology which are commensurate with Man's intellectual and cultural development, through the medium of fraternal association, ever obedient and subservient to the laws of this country and of all countries wherein The Fellowship may extend.
The Urantia Book Fellowship -- founded in 1955 as Urantia Brotherhood -- is an inclusive association of individuals, families, and groups inspired by the transformative teachings of The Urantia Book. Through worldwide support of study, dissemination, and reader services, Fellowship members seek understanding among all readers of The Urantia Book and the peoples of the world. The Fellowship is committed to the ideal of spiritual unity, which embraces individual diversity, as embodied in the teachings of The Urantia Book. The Urantia Book Fellowship is unaffiliated with Urantia Foundation.
The Fellowship publishes the fully indexed edition of The Urantia Book through its own internal publishing agency, Uversa Press.
Reader Services and organizational business are managed by the General Council which consists of 36 members elected from the readership. The Council is assisted by an Executive Committee comprised of Council members who manage various working committees of The Fellowship.
The Urantia Book Fellowship is a member of the North American Interfaith Network.
Many devoted men and women have served the Fellowship since 1955. To view the bios of current Fellowship leaders, click here: The General Council.
Many readers like to explore the book's ideas with other readers. Hundreds of small autonomous study groups have been formed around the world. Some of these study groups affiliate in regional societies which in turn elect leadership for The Fellowship.
