At the moment the College Chapel is the earliest and largest independent sanctuary for worship on the public university campuses in China. The engraved emblems of former thirteen Christian universities in China on the chancel walls bear witness of the rich heritage and mission of Chung Chi College as an institution of Christian higher education. As the first stance of the college anthem states:
Men from four seas founded Chung Chi so that here might youth
Honor Christ, eternal teacher, who Himself is truth.
Through the long night keep the torch bright and the work begun
Till the lights of faith and knowledge show the world made one.
