The Beliefs of Asatru

We believe that the Æsir and the Vanir are living Deities who came out of The Void before the beginning of time, and have ruled the Nine Worlds since then, and will rule them until The End of Time.

We believe that the Æsir and the Vanir are inherently Good, and that they always support Good and oppose Evil, and that they always want humans to do what is Right.

We believe that the Æsir and the Vanir foster and value the individuality of each person, and that each person should be proud of their good deeds and worthy ancestors.

We believe that Faith in the Æsir and the Vanir constitutes the Religion of Asatru, and that Asatru is our religion and our only religion.

We believe that as adherents of Asatru, we have a personal relationship with each and all of the Æsir and the Vanir, individually and collectively – and that all of the Æsir and Vanir are our friends.

We believe that everyone can and may have a similar personal relationship with any or all of the Æsir and the Vanir, and that Asatru is freely open to anyone who wants to accept it.

We believe that religious beliefs should always be of free choice, and that each person who chooses to adhere to Asatru should interpret it according to his or her own ideas, and that no one ever has the right to force another to adopt any religious beliefs against that person’s will, or to try to harm those who do not agree with them, for any reason.

We believe that when we die our spirits will live on in Other Realms, eventually to be reborn in this World, and that the best legacy we can leave for our descendents are our own good names and deeds.

We believe that Asatru provides the best Way of Life for all who choose to follow it, and that the best guideposts for this Way of Life are the Nine Noble Virtues: Courage, Truth, Honor, Fidelity, Hospitality, Discipline, Industriousness, Self-reliance, and Perseverance.
