Religion

Since a human being is the central factor in the plan of salvation, the Gospel must be taught, understood and accepted by him.

Politics

Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected. Laws in civil society should define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Views

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