Religion

Hell is a real place existing outside of God—an eternal separation between soul and God. Hell was created originally for Satan and his devils as a place of incredible torment.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

All Christians can seek to create a way of life deliberately designed to overcome evil with good and to promote justice for all.
