They usually believe that God is a single entity, either God the Father or God the Mother. Jesus was not the incarnate deity; he was simply a man. The Holy Spirit, for others, is a stronger match for their interpretation of the supernatural.
Many Unitarians, particularly those in North America, do not identify as Christians. Unitarians who continue to hold Jesus as a central figure in their religion are likely to hold any or more of the following views about him:
Unitarians believe that Jesus did not consider himself to be God, and that although he does seem to talk of himself as God in the Bible, this is due to a misunderstanding of the text and the society of his time.

Thomas Jefferson’s theological convictions were diametrically opposed to the conventional Christianity of his day. Jefferson was fascinated by theology, religious studies, and morality throughout his life. 1st [2] Deism, rational theology, Theistic rationalism, and Unitarianism were Jefferson’s favorites. [3] He was sympathetic to and in general agreement with Christianity’s spiritual precepts. [4] He regarded Jesus’ teachings as having “the most sublime and benevolent code of morality ever given to man,”[5] but he claimed that some of Jesus’ early followers had appropriated the pure teachings of Jesus, resulting in a Bible that included both “diamonds” of wisdom and “dung” of ancient political agendas. [number six]
As he stated in his First Inaugural Address[7], “acknowledging and adoring an overruling providence” was necessary, and in his second inaugural address, he expressed the need to gain “the favor of that Being in whose hands we are, who led our fathers, as Israel of old.”
[8] Nevertheless, Jefferson and James Madison waged a long and active campaign in Virginia against the state’s financial sponsorship of churches. In an 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptists of Connecticut, Jefferson coined the term “wall of separation between church and state.” During his presidential campaign in 1800, Jefferson had to deal with opponents who believed he was unfit for office due to his “abnormal” religious beliefs.
