Bis-Man UU Beliefs
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self – your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart. Thus, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door. Members of the UU join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been.
However, that doesn’t mean we do not share truths. UU beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. The covenant we share (our Seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” This responsible search has led us to an inclusive spirituality drawn from six sources: from scriptural wisdom to personal experience to modern day heroes.
Also, Unitarian Universalists believe more than one thing. We think for ourselves and reflect together about important questions:
- The existence of a Higher Power
- Life and Death
- Sacred Texts
- Inspiration and Guidance
- Prayer and Spiritual Practices
Therefore, we are united in our broad and inclusive outlook and in our values as expressed in our Seven Principles. Shared experience also unites us. Some of the most important being our open and stirring worship services, religious education, and rites of passage; our work for social justice; our quest to include the marginalized; our expressions of love.
