What do Unitarian Universalists Believe?
Below, some of our UUFM members have contributed their “elevator speech” to briefly explain what Unitarian Universalism means to them. Enjoy.
- UU is a liberal religion with no dogma. We honor the oneness of all life, often involving ourselves with issues of social justice. We find truth through our own inner guidance.
- The UU Church is a congregation of people whose intent is to gather in worship with the basic universal truths of many religions. Justice, love and the betterment of humankind are the focal points, and all are welcome. Come as you are, where you are.
- Unitarian Universalism allows you to have your own religious beliefs and ideas. As a group, we feel that religion is a reach for truth carried out by each individual. You don’t have to believe in God to be a Unitarian Universalist, but you can if you want to.
- UUs believe that each person is a spiritual being with human capacities such as love, compassion, empathy, conscience, truth, trust and a sense of justice. We develop these capabilities together in a spirit of tolerance and democratic process, relying on our common trust and mutual experience and communication, rather than on religious dogma.
