Religion

God never intended nor desired for a single person to go to Hell. Sin caused a separation between God and man, and that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only bridge to cross from death to life. This bridge, however, is accessible by anyone at anytime.

Politics

Churches should be encouraged to teach and preach biblical truth on moral issues and to urge their members to vote according to their beliefs, convictions, and values.

Views

Language of offensive nature with regard to race, ethnicity ornationality does not indicate the value of each individual and contradicts the teaching of Jesus Christ.

Membership
