The Unitarian Universalist Church of the Monterey Peninsula is a community of people with varying religious beliefs who come together to learn from many religious and philosophical traditions. We do this through the use of stories, music, poetry, drama, science and the writings of many learned people from the past and the present.
Instead of centering our religion on specific beliefs, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
With historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with through the ages. We believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason should be the final authorities. In the end, religious authority lies not in a single book or person or institution, but in ourselves.
