Religion

Salvation can be achieved through deep and sincere believe in God.

Politics

The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.

Views

There are different understandings about the Bible's authority in our lives. The task of every believer is to use different Bible translations and commentaries in order to discover the word of God.
