What UUs Believe
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion born of the Jewish and Christian traditions. We keep our minds open to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places.
We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion. In the end, religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. We put religious insights to the test of our hearts and minds.
We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. We say ours is a non-creedal religion. Ours is a free faith.
We believe that religious wisdom is ever-changing. Human understanding of life and death, the world and its mysteries, is never final. Revelation is continuous. We celebrate unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets, and sages throughout the ages.
We affirm the worth of all women and men. We believe that people should be encouraged to think for themselves. We know that people differ in their opinions and lifestyles and we believe that these differences should generally be honored.
We see to that as a moral force in the world, believing that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. We are deeply concerned with the here and now and the effects that our actions will have on future generations. We know that our relationships with one another, with other people's, races, and nations, should be governed by justice, equity, and compassion.
