Religion

The Gospel of Christ shows the essential steps that one must take to attain the goal of salvation.

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

Libelous language with regard to nationality, ethnic background, sexuality or gender does not assess the value of individual and contradicts the gospel of Jesus Christ.
