  Meaning of Unitarianism. Unitarianism is a theological movement named for its view that the God in Christianity is one person, contrary to the Trinity which defines God as three forms in one being; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Unitarian Christians hold that Jesus was encouraged by God in his moral teachings, and he is a savior, yet he was not a divinity or God incarnate. Now use two different Christian denominations to explain how it is important to different Christians. For example, Catholics believe that Jesus becomes present to them at the Mass and it is a way of becoming close to Jesus in a special way. It is the central form of worship for Christians and Catholics are meant to go to Mass every Sunday. Unitarianism (from Latin unitas "unity, oneness", from unus "one") is a Christian theological movement named for its belief that the God in Christianity is one person, as opposed to the Trinity (tri- from Latin tres "three") which in most other branches of Christianity defines God as one being in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Unitarian Christians, therefore, believe that.
