Unitarian Universalism (UU)

Unitarian Universalists are committed to justice and inclusion. Our tradition has been at the forefront of welcoming people of all ages and abilities who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and gender-nonconforming. Nearly all our congregations are certified Welcoming Congregations. We work for racial justice and for truth, healing, and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. We welcome people from all racial, religious, linguistic, and ethnic backgrounds, and want to learn what you have to teach us, from your background and experience. We want to include you in our faith community, where shared values are more important than shared beliefs.

We are united by our values, our broad and inclusive outlook, and our commitment to love and justice.

Unitarian Universalism (UUism) is a liberal religious faith grounded in the principle of covenant. UU communities come together in covenant of our shared principles. Our beliefs are diverse, and we travel our paths to spiritual discovery and truth together.

Unitarians are united by values rather than belief in one set of creed or dogma. Our values include acceptance of one another, compassion, and a commitment to justice and equity. We believe in exploring the mysteries of life, we believe in ethical living, we believe in living out our spirituality in this world by working for peace, justice, equality, democracy, and respect—for one another, as well as for the interdependent web of life, of which we are all a part.

We believe that it is not who or what you believe in that is important, but rather, how you live your life.
