What is Unitarian Universalism?
Unitarian Universalism (UU) is a religious organization that is not bound by creeds or doctrines. When we come together in fellowship, we gather around shared values instead of beliefs. There are UU congregations throughout the world.
We encourage one another to live toward wisdom, compassion and justice, using inspiration from many different religious and spiritual traditions.
UU's have historic roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, but individual Unitarian Universalists may identify with Agnosticism, Buddhism, Humanism, Paganism or with other philosophical or religious traditions.
We embrace a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Our members hold wide-ranging opinions on topics like the afterlife, God, and scripture.
UUA member congregations affirm and promote.
1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement of human growth
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
