Our Covenant

Covenants are affirmed in our worship because they represent the foundation upon which our church rests:

Love is the doctrine of our congregation;
The quest for truth is our holy rite;
And service is our prayer.
To dwell together in peace;
To seek knowledge in freedom;
To serve humankind in friendship;
Thus do we covenant.

 

We claim no supernatural authority for the covenants we use in our worship. They are not scriptural texts or creedal statements that claim divine origins or sanctions. They have not been passed down from an ecclesiastical hierarchy that claims to represent divine authority. Our covenants come instead from the hearts and minds of our people.
