    The diversity inside the Church should be respected and supported. Open debate within the Church on certain political and social issues should be encouraged.


    Salvation is not based on an individual's fulfillment of God’s commands, but rather on Christ's fulfillment of them and of being united with him through faith.

    Denomination: Baptist


    Every individual should try to be open to others and willing to be changed. Therefore, community members should meet regularly in order to open their hearts. Share their knowledge, thoughts and experience.
