Unitarian Universalism is a way of being religious rather than embracing a specific religious doctrine. For us, religion is an ongoing search for meaning, purpose, value, and spiritual depth in one’s life. We believe that individuals are entitled to make their own search, and that not all persons are going to share the same beliefs. We believe there is wisdom and value in most all religions, but that no one religion has all the answers. We believe in an inner harmony that will lead to ethical action.
Unitarian Universalists believe in individual responsibility to search for and form their own beliefs and as a result many UUs believe different things. What holds UUs together is not common belief, but common experience, a common approach to life. Unitarian Universalism has seven guiding principles, rather than a creed.
Unitarian Universalists believe in loving our neighbors as ourselves, working for a better world, searching for truth with an open mind, using reason to help us explore religious ideas, and granting everyone the right to choose their own beliefs.
We believe in the Golden Rule, in improving the world we have rather than living for the uncertain possibility of a hereafter, in searching for truth with an open mind, in using reason to help us explore religious ideas, and in granting everyone the right to choose their own beliefs.
