It is vital to meet and worship with other Christians in order to grow in the Christian life and to understand what is God's will for people and for their communities.


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.


Libelous language with regard to nationality, ethnic background, sexuality or gender does not assess the value of individual and contradicts the gospel of Jesus Christ.
