Our primary focus has been the dissemination of The Urantia Book and its teachings worldwide with the cultivation of a diverse and spiritually fragrant community of believers. For over 50 years we have consistently created opportunities for reader/believers to connect around service, study and socialization. We foster the scholarly study of the book as well as encourage the artistic expression of its sublime inspiration. By bringing readers together we supply the social fulcrum of our faith movement, leveraging the talents and resources of many scattered reader/believers around the world.
Programs: Our Accomplishments Include:We published the first Urantia Book that includes; a comprehensive indexed listing of names and topics, a two column print styling for easier reading, a universally accepted referencing system of: paper, section and paragraph numbers, an Appendix listing the accepted word and punctuation modifications from the initial 1950 edition. Through our new exclusive publishing service, Uversa Press, we also offer study aids such as The Paramony and The Wrightwood Series. Continuing in our 50 year tradition, we freely provide the Urantia community with outstanding printed publications such as The Mighty Messenger and The Herald that showcase the best thoughts and insights of individuals who have experienced a revelation that is epochaly significant.

The Urantia Book Fellowship is the original social fraternal organization of readers of The Urantia Book. Since 1955 the Fellowship has done all it can to create an awareness of The Urantia Book among all peoples. They have had a dual purpose of dissemination of the book and service to those who find it, read it and consequently believe in it.

I will continue to give them my hearty support because the organization embodies the values of truth, beauty and goodness, that I hold most dear.
