Religion

God offers a loving relationship. The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. God has freely and graciously already made it possible.

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 strongest feature of Methodism is that ordinary people play a major role in the running of the Church.
