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

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

Views

Holiness is not just about personal spirituality and prayer. It will also be expressed through a commitment to social justice and enabling other people to become followers of Jesus.
