The sole basis for faith is the Bible and it is infallible.


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.


Christianity is not merely a list or rules of what one can and cannot do, but rather a means to develop a close relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
