Religion

The Gospel of Christ is the message that can lead one to salvation. It shows the essential steps that one must take to secure the goal that God wishes all to attain.

Politics

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

Different kinds of small groups inside the overall Methodist movement should be encouraged to developed, so that both leaders and members of the societies could receive support and challenge in their faith.
