Religion

The Gospel shows the manner and the necessary work to be done, by which salvation can be achieved. This is human responsibility to innovate, sponsor, and evaluate new forms of community living.

Politics

All human life is created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

Views

Every Church member should be trusted with responsibilities. In building the local Methodist groups or 'societies', they should be trained to maintain the meetings and give pastoral care and challenge to the members.
