Unitarianism

A system of religious thought which rejects the doctrine of the Trinity and the deity of Christ, and seeks to show that genuinely religious community can be created without doctrinal conformity. It has evolved from emphasis on scriptural authority to a foundation on reason and experience. Unitarians believe in the goodness of human nature, criticize doctrines of the Fall, the Atonement, and eternal damnation, and require only openness to divine inspiration. In polity they are congregationalists.
