Beliefs 

Unitarian Universalists believe that no one religion has all the answers but that most have something to teach us. For Unitarian Universalists, being religious does not mean embracing a specific religious doctrine, but engaging in an ongoing search for what gives our lives meaning, purpose and spiritual depth. We know that not all of us are going to share the same beliefs, but that is OK.

Unitarian Universalism offers a home for those who simply can’t accept what they’ve always been asked to believe without question. In Unitarian Universalism, what is sacred is determined by each of us based on our own direct experience as well as teachings from diverse sources:

What holds UUs together is not common belief, but common experience and a common approach to life. Unitarian Universalists use our Principles and Purposes to define our shared values and inspire us to ethical action. Rather than focus on achieving an afterlife, most Unitarian Universalists are focused on using this life to make the world a more just and compassionate place.
