What does it mean to be Unitarian Universalist?
Unitarian Universalism is a covenanted, not a creedal, religion. We believe that truth continues to unfold, that revelation is not fixed. Because of that, we do not submit to a particular doctrine. Rather than commiting to a creed, we commit to each other. We live in intentional relationship with one another.
Because we are non-creedal, we are free to search for truth individually and collectively. We are open to many spiritual paths and know that truth is revealed from many sources. These include our personal experiences, the truths of science, the Judeo-Christian tradition, humanist teachings, our own reason and conscience and the people of faith from all over the world.
We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote
• the inherent worth and dignity of every person;
• justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
• acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
• a free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
• the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
• the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
• respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
About the UUA
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is a religious organization that combines the Unitarian and Universalist traditions. Each of the 1,041 UU congregations is self-governing, and they join together in the UUA to provide services that individual congregations cannot provide for themselves. Each congregation is also associated with one of the UUA's 19 districts (First Unitarian Society of Westchester is associated with the UU District of Metropolitan New York).
