About Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalism is a theologically liberal religion characterized by support for a 'free and responsible search for truth and meaning'. Unitarian Universalists do not share a creed; rather, they are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth and by the understanding that an individual's theology is a result of that search and not obedience to an authoritarian requirement. Unitarian Universalists draw on many different theological sources and have a wide range of beliefs and practices. Contemporary Unitarian Universalism espouses a pluralist approach to religious belief, whereby members may describe themselves as atheist, agnostic, deist, monotheist, pantheist, polytheist, pagan, or assume no label at all. As of 2006, fewer than about 20% of Unitarian Universalists identified themselves as Christian.
