Growing Unitarianism Around the World
Unitarianism or Unitarian Universalism on a global scale is a collection of indigeneous national movements, churches and sometimes single congregations. As a non-creedal faith, there is no single document or doctrine that must be believed or accepted. On global scale there is no single standard for accrediting ministers or congregations.
Rather, in most places where Unitarianism exists, it has grown independently inspired by ideas of freedom of religion, the use of reason in approaching sacred scriptures and belief statements and in the forming of personal religious beliefs, and tolerance for a diversity of views and beliefs among our co-religionists.
In the global UU community, there are a wide variety of beliefs. While many follow a liberal Christian approach, many others are more humanistically inclined. We have pagans and atheists, and people who bring the gifts of virtually every other world religion into our communities.
