    Politics

    The belief in religious freedom and its corollary, the separation of the institutions of church and state, come from the commitment to the authority of the Bible.

    Religion

    God never intended nor desired for a single person to go to Hell. Sin caused a separation between God and man, and that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only bridge to cross from death to life. This bridge, however, is accessible by anyone at anytime.

    Denomination: Baptist

    Views

    Holiness is not just about personal spirituality and prayer. It will also be expressed through a commitment to social justice and to enabling other people to become followers of Jesus.
