Hell is a real place existing outside of God—an eternal separation between soul and God. Hell was created originally for Satan and his devils as a place of incredible torment.


The belief in religious freedom and its corollary, the separation of the institutions of church and state, come from the commitment to the authority of the Bible.


It is important to experience of God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
