  • Channing Church Affirmation

    Love is the doctrine of this church
    The quest for truth is 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.
