Los Angeles Golden Rule Lodge #35 IOOF

A Family Fraternity

Striving to make the world a better place in which to live.


Friendship, Love and Truth


To Improve and Elevate the Character of Mankind


To visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan.

Odd Fellows Creed

Genuine FRIENDSHIP, which heareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things, is the first step toward progress and personal enrichment, and the progenitor of Temperance, Prudence and Justice;

Unfettered LOVE is the basis for all life's ambitions - the controlling passion of service to humanity - more powerful than the atom - more potent than any finite force;

Inflexible TRUTH, the imperial virtue, begets economic stability, equality under law, freedom of enterprise, the highest of ethical standards, and lasting peace, the ultimate goal of fraternity;

Universal BROTHERHOOD of MAN under the FATHERHOOD of GOD is imperative to the survival of the world, and can be accomplished only through the catalysis of fellowship - inculcating the cohesion which stems from understanding and amity among peoples, states and nations.

Odd Fellows Valediction


I believe in the Fatherhood of God, and the Brotherhood of man;

I believe Friendship, Love and Truth as basic guides to the ultimate destiny of all mankind

I believe my home, my church or temple, my lodge and my community deserve my best work, my modest pride, my earnest faith and my deepest loyalty, as I perform my duty "to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan&quit; and as I work with others to build a better world because, in sprit and in truth, I am and must always be grateful to my Creator, faithful to my country and fraternal to my fellowmen;
