In Christian and Christian-derived theologiesEdit

A Unitarian is a follower of, or a member of an organisation that follows, any of several theologies referred to as Unitarianism:

  • Unitarianism, (1565–present) a liberal Christian theological movement known for its belief in the unitary nature of God, and for its rejection of the doctrines of the Trinity, original sin, predestination, and of biblical inerrancy
  • Unitarian Universalism (often referring to themselves simply as 'Unitarians'), a primarily North American liberal pluralistic religious movement that grew out of Unitarianism, but later became more associated with Humanism, no longer officially opposing Trinitarianism nor officially supporting Theism, and which holds no specific creeds.
  • In everyday British usage, "Unitarian" refers to the organisation formally known as the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, which holds beliefs similar to Unitarian Universalists
  • International Council of Unitarians and Universalists, an umbrella organization
  • Biblical Unitarianism, a fundamentalist non-Trinitarian movement (flourished c.1876-1929)
  • Nontrinitarianism, a generic name for a Christian point of view that rejects the Trinity doctrine
