UU Wisdom

"The Bible is holy scripture because it is a living document and foundation of many important faiths, including Unitarian Universalism. To abandon the Bible would mean alienation from one of the world's most important influences on religious thought—liberal and otherwise. Our UU [Unitarian Universalist] Principles and Purposes are saturated with biblical concepts and ideals. Our concept of respect for the web of existence, for instance, emanates from a stream of thought that flows through the Psalms and the Prophets from that same God of Genesis who declared the goodness of creation."

—David McFarland, minister

About Us

About Us

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to find their own spiritual path. Our faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Our congregations are places where we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action by helping to make our communities—and the world—a better place.

Unitarian Universalism is a theologically diverse religion in which members support one another in our search for truth and meaning.  We have historic roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, but today individual Unitarian Universalists may identify as Atheist, Agnostic, Buddhist, Humanist,  Pagan, or with other philosophical or religious traditions.

We promote reason and tolerance in our communities and embrace a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. As members of a non-creedal religious tradition, we Unitarian Universalists are encouraged to discern our own beliefs about different spiritual topics.

The Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) seven principles express the shared values that UUA member congregations affirm and promote.  Many Unitarian Universalists find rich personal and theological meaning in these principles.
