The only Universal Life Church that IS NOT considered a Degree Mill by statute is the Universal Life Church World Headquarters of Milwaukee, WI. and Carrabelle, FL. which is also the only Universal Life Church with a traditional doctrine of faith and with real, legal faith based ordination valid in each of the 50 States, Canada and throughout most of the world. All other Universal Life Churches are nothing but degree mills, who have gall to charge for worthless degrees.
