Religion

No one is less important than another, and no one can be thought of as unnecessary. Every single person is vital to God and to each of us.

Politics

The diversity of religious expressions is guaranteed by the separation of church and state. However, church and state should interact in different social and political fields for the benefit of the whole society.

Views

The supportive small group inside the Church is the most powerful tool for people to feel that they belong and to learn and grow.
