Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The use of force may be supported in extreme situations and when the need to do so is beyond reasonable doubt.

Language of offensive nature with regard to race, ethnicity or nationality does not indicate the value of each individual and contradicts the teaching of Jesus Christ.
