Religion

A mature Christian can reach a state where the love of God reigns supreme in the heart. No one can be perfect in an absolute way, as God is. But it is possible to be perfect in love to God.

Politics

Represented in Baptist churches are equally diverse worship styles, cultural mores and approaches to Scriptural interpretation. The resulting challenges and opportunities have made the believers stronger —through fellowship, respect, mutual support and dialog, all based on a belief that unity in Christ involves growth and understanding.

Views

God should be loved with hearts as well as with minds. To the best of ability everyone needs to think things through in the light of reason. This means becoming aware of different points of view, and using his or her critical thinking to make sense of God's world.
