What We Believe

Unitarian Universalist beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. Our shared covenant (our seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Though Unitarianism and Universalism were both liberal Christian traditions in colonial America, this responsible search has led us in modern times to an inclusive spirituality drawn from six sources, which include scriptural wisdom, personal experience and human heroes, both historical and modern.

Unitarian Universalists are united in our broad and inclusive outlook, and in our values, as expressed in our seven Principles. 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.

We support each individual's thinking and reflect together on our many views about life's important questions:

  • The existence of a Higher Power
  • Life and Death and the meaning of it all
  • Sacred Texts
  • Inspiration and Guidance
  • Prayer and Spiritual Practices
