In early 2010, several deists collaborated to create a voluntary set of principles for deists to apply in their own lives. These principles are rooted in deism's core concepts and Enlightenment ideals.

- We hold that God likely exists based on reason and observation of the natural universe.

- We hold that everything we need to know of God can be found in the universe itself.

- We hold that God does not act in the universe in ways that contradict natural law, but do not deny the possibility.

- We hold that human beings are capable of having profound experiences of God, but hold that such personal revelations are true only for themselves.

- We hold that love is the noblest and most important element of human relationships. We advocate honesty and justice, guided by compassion and respect, in our dealings with one another.

- We hold that people should advance the human condition within their personal capacity to do so.

- We hold that people should be free in all aspects of their lives, provided they do not disturb the peace, happiness, or safety of society. We believe in personal responsibility for our actions.

- We hold that faith is a personal matter guided by the dictates of conscience. We endeavor to promote deism by teaching those who are interested.

- We hold that the separation of religion and government is essential.

- We hold that our understanding of God and our approach to deism must evolve with our knowledge of the universe.
