Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

The commitment of individual Christians to work for social and political change should be recognized as a fully legitimate form of Christian discipleship.

Views

Christians with different interpretations of the Bible should be engaged in discussions about the ways the Bible can be applied to major world issues.
