Religion

People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform people, and so they should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

Politics

The commitment of individual Christians to work for social and political change should be recognized as a fully legitimate form of Christian discipleship.
