Overview – Beliefs and Principles

Welcome to Unitarian Universalism, a religion that celebrates diversity of belief and is guided by seven principles. Every UU congregation is unique, but are places where people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action through social justice work in our communities and the wider world.

Unitarian Universalism welcomes people with diverse beliefs. There is a rich dialogue in our congregations about many spiritual topics. Below are some topics that newcomers are often curious about.

While our congregations uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists may discern their own beliefs about spiritual, ethical, and theological issues. In addition to holding different beliefs on spiritual topics, individual Unitarian Universalists may also identify with and draw inspiration from Atheism and AgnosticismBuddhismChristianityHumanismJudaismPaganism, and other religious or philosophical traditions.
