What do Unitarian Universalists believe?
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that encompasses many faith traditions. It includes people who identify themselves as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and others. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, we are free to search for truth on many paths.
We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. Ours is a free faith.
Although we uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists have varied beliefs about everything from scripture to rituals to God.
What do you do at Sunday Services?
Our Sunday Services are varied and unique, but most follow the basic liturgy of a liberal Protestant worship service.
There is usually opening music followed by a statement of welcome and a call to worship.
This is followed by church announcements, brief statements of personal joys or concerns, an offering, hymns, meditation or prayer followed by the main speaker and the sermon.
There may be a closing hymn followed by closing words.
Often there is an interactive element in the service, whether a simple ritual (always totally optional) or a brief discussion.
