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

Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

Spiritual support, encouragement and challenge should be major strengths of a Christian community.
