Religion

The Covenant is a big challenge to everybody. If God is committed to human race, anyone has to be prepared to accept that as reality and make a commitment in return.

Politics

When seeking to address certain political issues, the Church must engage with other denominations to understand their views and needs.

Views

Christians should read the Bible as part of a faith community, and try to put themselves into the story of God's dealings with humanity.
