Works

Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.

Views

Holiness is not just about personal spirituality and prayer. It will also be expressed through a commitment to social justice and enabling other people to become followers of Jesus.
