Religion

God never intended nor desired for a single person to go to Hell. Sin caused a separation between God and man, and that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only bridge to cross from death to life. This bridge, however, is accessible by anyone at anytime.

Politics

Government is appointed by God as His servant to encourage good and restrain evil to the end that all people are blessed and His people are enabled to live quiet and peaceful lives in all godliness and holiness.

Views

Every individual should try to be open to others and willing to be changed. Therefore, community members should meet regularly in order to open their hearts. Share their knowledge, thoughts and experience.
