Everyone Believes

On the High Holidays, we recite the piyut "Ve-Khol Ma'aminim" -- and all believe. This liturgical poem lists a number of beliefs about God and declares that everyone accepts them. How can we say that when we know that not everyone believes these things? Is it a hopeful prayer that eventually everyone will accept them? Anyone have any thoughts?
