With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion -- that is, a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. We are a "non-creedal" religion: we do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed.

UUA - Unitarian Universalist Association
The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) was formed in 1961 when the Universalist Church of America and the American Unitarian Association merged. Today the UUA consists of over 1,000 congregations that support each other, foster the growth of Unitarian Universalism, and publicly promote the Unitarian Universalist principles.
