Unitarianism is an individualistic approach to religion that gives scope for a very wide range of beliefs and questioning. There is no unifying Unitarian creed, no specified list of things that Unitarians must believe.

In general, Unitarians are skeptical about any person or tradition claiming possession of the whole truth. They are also increasingly aware of the inherent value of diversity for the wellbeing of the natural world. Consequently, Unitarians suggest that human differences of opinion and lifestyle should be seen as potentially creative and enriching, rather than necessarily destructive.

Unitarians believe that everyone has the right to seek truth and meaning for themselves, using their intellect; their conscience and their own experience of life. Unitarians believe that the best setting for finding religious truth and meaning is a community that welcomes each individual for themselves, complete with their beliefs, doubts and questions.
