Are My Beliefs Welcome in Unitarian Universalism?
Unitarian Universalism welcomes people with diverse beliefs. There is a rich dialogue in our congregations about many spiritual topics. Below are some topics that newcomers are often curious about.
- Spiritual Practice and Prayer
- Existence of a Higher Power
- Life and Death
- Inspiration and Guidance
- Sacred Texts
In addition to holding different beliefs on spiritual topics, individual Unitarian Universalists may also identify with and draw inspiration from Atheism and Agnosticism, Buddhism, Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Paganism, and other religious or philosophical traditions.
Our Unitarian Universalist faith has evolved through a long history, with theological origins in European Christian traditions. Today Unitarian Universalism is a non-creedal faith which allows individual Unitarian Universalists the freedom to search for truth on many paths. While our congregations uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists may discern their own beliefs about spiritual, ethical, and theological issues.
Watch an introductory video at the right and hear Unitarian Universalists explain our faith in their own words. Explore our website using navigation links at the left or top of the page to read more about our history, programs, and initiatives. Maybe the best way to get a sense of what we're all about is to visit a congregation near you. Whatever you choose, we invite you to discover Unitarian Universalism!
