Religion

The Gospel of Christ is the message that can lead one to salvation. It shows the essential steps that one must take to secure the goal that God wishes all to attain.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

Views

It is important to experience God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
