Our Affirmation and Statement of Interfaith

Affirmation:

Love is the doctrine of this church;
the quest of truth its sacrament; and service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace, to seek knowledge in freedom,
to serve humanity in fellowship,
to the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with the Divine.
Thus do we covenant with each other, and with God.

Statement of Interfaith:

You are welcome here. We are an open door through which persons of all faiths may pass, be understood, and accepted; a community chapel that proclaims love as its doctrine.
