Religion

Local church is the fundamental unit of mission in denominational life.

Politics

Represented in Baptist churches are equally diverse worship styles, cultural mores and approaches to Scriptural interpretation. The resulting challenges and opportunities have made the believers stronger —through fellowship, respect, mutual support and dialog, all based on a belief that unity in Christ involves growth and understanding.

Views

In a society where self-interest and hypocrisy are often seen as dominating, the Christians should nurture and promote values and purposes that are beyond us.
