Unitarian Universalist Beliefs, Traditions and Blogs Unitarian Universalism may not belong in the Protestant guide per se; it may not even fall fully into the Christianity camp (which is why it is listed last).

Unitarians historically consisted of Christians that didn't believe in the Trinity, but rather a singular God. Unitarian Universalism (UU) is a liberal religion characterized by a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning".

Unitarian Universalists assert no creed, but instead are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth, guided by a dynamic, "living tradition".Currently, these traditions are summarized by the Six Sources and Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, documents.

Unitarianism as an organized religious movement emerged during the Reformation period in Poland, Transylvania, and England, and later in North America from the original New England Puritan churches.

In each country Unitarian leaders sought to achieve a reformation that was completely in accordance with the Hebrew Scriptures and the New particular, they found no warrant for the. I wouldn’t go that far, though I would say we are a liberal faith with a very Protestant worship style.
