The Jaycee Creed
- That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
- That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
- That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
- That governments should be of laws rather than of men;
- That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
- And that service to humanity is the best work of life!
