Religion

Our faith rests not on our own feelings, but on the promises of a faithful God.

Politics

People sometimes argue that involvement in political life involves getting our hands dirty, so is something Christians should avoid. But God is present in everything, including political institutions.

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.
