    All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.


    God wants to see people productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

    Denomination: Methodist


    God enables every person to resist evil, by accepting forgiveness and liberation, and willing to be open to the Holy Spirit.
