Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

God calls for justice for those, who are oppressed by the powers of the day. Therefore Christians should be involved in political life.

Views

The sense of being connected is how the Church as a whole should be structured. At its heart is an understanding of the Christian community as the 'body of Christ '.
