In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart. As you learn more about Unitarian Universalism and its Seven Principles, you might find that additional support gives you the freedom to strengthen your own personal spiritual journey.
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. Our shared covenant (Seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” From the earliest age, our children begin learning the value of the principles.
Though Unitarianism and Universalism were both liberal Christian traditions, this responsible search has led us to an inclusive spirituality drawn from Six Sources: from scriptural wisdom to personal experience to modern day heroes.
Unitarian Universalists believe more than one thing. We think for ourselves, and reflect together, about important questions:
- The existence of a Higher Power
- Life and Death
- Sacred Texts
- Inspiration and Guidance
- Prayer and Spiritual Practices
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.
