    Politics

    The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

    It is vital to meet and worship with other Christians in order to grow in the Christian life and to understand what is God's will for people and for their communities.
