"We are united in seeking
to increase love with justice,
and to constitute a free church
open to all people.
Mindful of our past
and drawing upon modern knowledge,
We respond to the spiritual needs of persons
and are devoted to the common good
in community, nation and world.
We cherish the integrity of each individual
and search for truth with reason as our guide.
We respect differences of opinion
and strive to be a democratic community.
We are concerned with this world.
and open to the future."
