What is Unitarian Universalism?
So, what is Unitarian Universalism?
We’re compassionate thinkers and doers who live our faith by doing. Diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, we’re aligned in our desire to make a difference for the greater good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice and peace.
We’re united in our broad and inclusive outlook, and in our values, as expressed in our seven principles. We’re united in shared experience: 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.
We need not think alike to love alike. On the forefront of LGBTQ inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We are a welcoming congregation.

Our faith tradition is diverse and inclusive. We grew from the union of two radical Christian groups: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They joined to become the UUA in 1961. Both groups trace their roots in North America to the early Massachusetts settlers and the Framers of the Constitution. Across the globe, our legacy reaches back centuries to liberal religious pioneers in England, Poland and Transylvania. Today, Unitarian Universalists include people of many beliefs who share UU values of peace, love and understanding. We are creators of positive change in people and in the world.
