    Politics

    The diversity of religious expressions is guaranteed by the separation of church and state. However, church and state should interact in different social and political fields for the benefit of the whole society.

    Religion

    People who do not trust in Christ will enter into eternal condemnation. People who trust in Christ for salvation will enter into the loving presence of God for all eternity.

    Denomination: Baptist

    Views

    The sense of being connected is how the Church as a whole should be structured. At its heart is an understanding of the Christian community as the 'body of Christ '.
