What do Unitarian Universalists believe?

From the UUA Website: “Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that encompasses many faith traditions. Unitarian Universalists include people who identify as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists, and others. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, Unitarian Universalists are free to search for truth on many paths.”

To quote the Rev. Marta Flanagan, “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.”

Although we uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists have varied beliefs about everything from scripture, to rituals, to God. Individual Unitarian Universalists have included Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, and many more.
