  • Unitarian Universalist Church accepts all faiths and beliefs... including non-christian ones.

  • They are inclusive of all religions (unless your religion is not also inclusive of all religions, and then you are a hateful, bigoted, closed-minded, misinformed, misguided, out-of-date, person who needs to lighten up).

  • They seem to be a religion without doctrine for those who want to be part of a spiritual community....

  • Uh, ouch to some of these answers. I think this organization deserves some respect, ladies.


    OP, UUs have a wide range of beliefs, but most share the belief in universal salvation. That regardless of the path, all paths will lead to reconciliation with God. They also promote personal and individual spiritual growth.

    There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:



    • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

    • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

    • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

    • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

    • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

    • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

    • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

  • Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

    Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
    Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
    Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
    Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
    Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
    Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
