    Politics

    The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

    Religion

    The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

    Views

    Every member of a Christian Church should be delicate to other people and use appropriate language while communicating with others.
