    The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.


    The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

    Denomination: Methodist


    Every Church member should be trusted with responsibilities. In building the local Methodist groups or 'societies', they should be trained to maintain the meetings and give pastoral care and challenge to the members.
