    Politics

    The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.

    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

    Christians with different approaches should be engaged with each other to discuss how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
