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 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.

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.
