Religion

As someone joins the group of people seeking to follow the way of Jesus, it means to respond to God's challenge and begin to share his relationship with God as Father.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

Church members should be close and caring to feel each other's pains and problems. The good of the whole body of the Christian society should be put before individual needs.
