The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.


Every Church statement in social or economic field should be seriously considered and demonstrate a competence in political sphere.


All persons need the ministry of the Church in their struggles for human fulfillment, as well as the spiritual and emotional care of a fellowship that enables reconciling relationships with God, with others, and with self.
