What do Unitarian Universalists have to offer the world?

One of the unique characteristics of Unitarian Universalism is that it does not require any particular credal belief. The joke is that UUs can believe in anything. Well, yes, but, while we do not necessarily subscribe to the same creeds, we do have the same values. Here are the seven values which UUs subscribe to:

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
