Religion

People who do not trust in Christ will enter into eternal condemnation. People who trust in Christ for salvation will enter into the loving presence of God for all eternity.

Politics

The belief in religious freedom and its corollary, the separation of the institutions of church and state, come from the commitment to the authority of the Bible.

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.
