Grand Rapids Junior Chambers

We are a group of professionally
minded young people between
the ages of 21 and 40.

Our 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 government 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.
– C.W. Brownfield

History of Creed

The Junior Chamber’s Creed was written by C. William Brownfield in 1946 in Milwaukee, WI, the site of that year’s United States Chamber National Convention. Attendees that year came from the USA, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, and the Philippine Islands. The Creed was later adopted by both the United States Junior Chamber and Junior Chamber International. This simple statement of beliefs unites Junior Chambers around the world in a bond of friendship and purpose, and these 65 words have become the third most important document in the lives of many, many people worldwide.
