We are united in striving to know the will of God
as taught in the Holy Scriptures,
and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord,
made known or to be made known to us.
We hold it to be the mission of the Church
to proclaim the gospel to all humanity,
exalting the worship of one true God,
and laboring for the progress of knowledge,
the promotion of justice,
the reign of peace,
and the realization of human
brotherhood and sisterhood.
Depending, as did our ancestors,
upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit
to lead us into all truth,
we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the kingdom of God,
and we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness
and the life everlasting.
