    Politics

    Represented in Baptist churches are equally diverse worship styles, cultural mores and approaches to Scriptural interpretation. The resulting challenges and opportunities have made the believers stronger —through fellowship, respect, mutual support and dialog, all based on a belief that unity in Christ involves growth and understanding.

    Religion

    Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, God has broken the power of all that is evil, in the world and in people.

    Denomination: Baptist
