About Unitarian Universalism
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.
Together, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door: we join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been before.
Our beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. Instead, we gather to commit to one another and the many ways we find meaning and purpose to guide our lives. Unitarianism and Universalism are both liberal Christian traditions, rooted in the idea that people are capable of growing in goodness and that a loving God redeems all of creation. As we have lived both of those traditions, we have expanded to include spirituality drawn from many sources: from scriptural wisdom of many traditions, to personal experience, to modern day heroes.
We think for ourselves, and reflect together, about important questions:
- The existence and nature of a Higher Power
- Life and Death
- Sacred Texts
- Inspiration and Guidance
- Prayer and Spiritual Practices
We are united in our broad and inclusive outlook, and in our values. We are united in shared experience: our open and stirring worship services, religious education, and rites of passage; our work for social justice; our quest to include the marginalized; our expressions of love.
