Religion

The relationship with God in Covenant is like a marriage between human beings – both as a community and as individuals – on the one side and God in Christ on the other.

Politics

God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

Views

Church members should meet regularly in order to be accountable to each other about how each person was living the Christian life.
