Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to find their own spiritual path. Our faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Our congregations are places we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action by helping to make our communities— and the world — a better place.
Many Theological Traditions
Unitarian Universalism is a theologically diverse religion in which members support one another in our search for truth and meaning. We have historic roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, but today individual Unitarian Universalists may identify as Atheist, Agnostic, Muslim, Buddhist, Humanist, Pagan, or with other philosophical or religious traditions.
We promote reason and tolerance in our communities and embrace a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. As members of a non-creedal religious tradition, we Unitarian Universalists are encouraged to discern our own beliefs about different spiritual topics.
Our Seven Principles express the shared values that UU congregations affirm and promote. Many Unitarian Universalists find rich personal and theological meaning in these principles.
