Religion

Baptism is an act of full immersion following Christ’s example. It should be undertaken by spiritually matured individuals capable to understand its profound significance: resurrection to new life.

Politics

Christians exercising their rights as responsible citizens may choose to endorse candidates for political office as part of the exercise of their engagement of culture.

Views

The life with Christ is not only to live in the atmosphere of your local church. God made his children creative, productive, and therefore able to make the whole world a better place.
