Religion

The human race, with an acceptance of Christ, is destined to inherit a condition and quality of life that is beyond the imaginations of manitoba.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Christians with different approaches should be engaged with each other to discuss how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
