We have a sound set of values on which we base all of our policies and actions. The most important factors in our success are faith in and obedience to these values. In order to meet the challenge of our changing world, we must be prepared to change everything about ourselves—except these values—as we move forward.
The basic vision, spirit, and drive of our organization has far more to do with our achievements than do such factors as economic trends, organizational structure and timing. These are obviously important, but they will be transcended by how strongly we believe in our basic values and how faithfully we live by them.
