NASHVILLE, Tenn. (RNS) Unitarian Universalists grew nationally by 15.8 percent from 2000 to 2010, and while they remain small in total numbers with about 211,000 adherents nationwide, Unitarians believe their open-minded faith has a bright future as an alternative to more exclusive brands of religion.

    Because Unitarian Universalism is a creed-free liberal religious movement,
    it has more potential for future growth
    than all ‘faiths’ that are tied to a holy person or book fixed in the past.
