We are Non-Creedal

Unitarian Universalists believe in complete but responsible freedom of speech, thought, belief, faith, and disposition.

We believe that each person is free to search for his or her own personal truth on issues, such as the existence, nature, and meaning of life, deities, creation, and afterlife.

We come from any heritage, have any sexual orientation or gender identity, and hold beliefs from a variety of cultures or religions.  

Do We Believe in God?

Concepts about deity in our congregation are diverse. Some believe...

  • that there is no god (atheism)
  • in many gods (polytheism)
  • that God is a metaphor for a transcendent reality
  • in a female god (goddess)
  • in a passive god (Deism)
  • in a Christian god
  • in a god manifested in nature or the universe (pantheism)
  • each person's truth and morality is sought through human investigation (humanism)

Many reject the idea of deities all together and instead speak of the "spirit of life" that binds all life on earth. We support each person's search for truth and meaning in concepts of spirituality by following the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism.
