Religion

The Gospel shows the manner and the necessary work to be done, by which salvation can be achieved. This is human responsibility to innovate, sponsor, and evaluate new forms of community living.

Politics

When seeking to address certain political issues, the Church must engage with other denominations to understand their views and needs.
