Our faith, Unitarian Universalism, is spiritually alive and justice-centered.

Unitarian Universalists search for truth along many paths. Instead of centering our religion on specific beliefs, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with through the ages. We believe personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end, religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves.

To learn more about Unitarian Universalism's religious roots and theologies, visit the Unitarian Universalist Association's "Beliefs Within Our Faith." For other information about the denomination, visit the website of the Unitarian Universalist Association. You might also take a look at Wikipedia's description of Unitarian Universalism, our Principles and Sources and 100 Questions That Non-Members Ask About Unitarian Universalism published by the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Nashua, New Hampshire .

What Unitarian Universalists have to say:

"I want a religion that respects the differences between people and affirms every person as an individual."

"I want a church that values children, that welcomes them on their own terms—a church they are eager to attend on Sunday morning."

"I want a congregation that cherishes freedom and encourages open dialogue on questions of faith, one in which it is okay to change your mind."

"I want a religious community that affirms spiritual exploration and reason as ways of finding truth."

"I want a church that acts locally and thinks globally on the great issues of our time—world peace; women's rights; racial justice; homelessness; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender rights; and protection of the environment."
