We are non-creedal, that is, we do not require members to profess particular beliefs. We are united instead by shared values, which guide us in our daily lives. Our Principles and Sources articulate these values and our congregations have covenanted to promote them. They are nicely summed up in our Children's Affirmation: "Love your neighbor as yourself; search for truth with an open mind; make the world a better place."
Both the Unitarian and Universalist sides of our tradition grew out of liberal Christianity. Over the centuries we have opened ourselves to many sources of wisdom beyond the Bible -- other religions, philosophy, the findings of science, art and literature, and our own living experience. Some of our members have special interest in Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Pagan, Humanist, and other perspectives.
