Christian Universalist Association
Begun in January 2007 by Rev. Eric Stetson, the Christian Universalist Association was "officially founded on May 17, 2007 at a leadership meeting at the historic Universalist National Memorial Church in Washington, D.C." and now operates as "a legally incorporated non-profit religious organization, established in the Commonwealth of Virginia and registered with the IRS". According to its website, the Christian Universalist Association "is an interdenominational organization connecting churches, ministries, and individuals who believe in Christian Universalism. The CUA is active in evangelism and outreach to the public, spreading the Good News of God's love for all people. We are especially focused on helping people find and participate in developing positive and uplifting communities of faith that share this belief, where they can get involved and grow spiritually through worship, fellowship, and service to God and other people."
In describing the scope of its activities, its website states that "we hold conferences, publish literature and a periodical, encourage networking and cooperation among believers, maintain a directory of churches and meeting groups, work to foster church planting, and create new resources to deepen and reform Christianity and help to bring people together from various religious traditions in a shared discovery of truth."
