Religion

God created humans to be able to innovate and evaluate new forms of living that will encourage development of the fullest potential in individuals.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

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.
