The above statement is certainly the most public and perhaps the best-known description of the mission of Delta Chi. The preamble’s principle ideals offer profound potential as a guide to daily life and as a brother. It has been pointed out that the four most important words in the Preamble are not what most members would assume: “Friendship”, “Character”, “Justice”, and “Education”.
Instead, it is suggested that the four most important words are “Promote”, “Develop”, “Advance”, and “Assist.” The point is that a Fraternity, and, in particular, Delta Chi, is not just about what “is” but what we, as members, should actually be doing. It is our actions that make Delta Chi, which is why the key words are the verbs instead of the nouns.
