Religion

Through Covenant each individual accepts the relationship with God. It is not about acquiring a relationship with God, but living within the loving relationship that God has already offered.

Politics

God, who is heard throughout the Bible, calls for justice for the widows, orphans and aliens who were oppressed by the powers of the day. Therefore the involvement in political life is something that Christians should not avoid.
