    Politics

    Christians acting as the salt of the earth and the light of the world have a responsibility to engage their culture, including participating in the political process.

    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

    Marriage is a microcosm of our relationship with Jesus Christ. God meant for a marriage to help to understand, to some degree, God’s vast and intricate love for people.
