    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

    Christ died on the cross to give humans the promise of everlasting life, but this requires that each individual accepts Christ into his life and asks for forgiveness.

    Views

    Christianity is not merely a list or rules of what one can and cannot do, but rather a means to develop a close relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
