Religion

Life is not about things. Life is relationships. Foremost of those relationships is the one we hold with Jesus Christ.

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

It is important to experience of God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
