Religion

Everybody can reach the love of God. Salvation is for everyone who turns to God. Salvation requires work. It can only be accomplished through effort, and this is what the Gospel is all about.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions. When peaceful alternatives have failed, the force of arms may regretfully be preferable to unchecked aggression, tyranny and genocide.

Views

Bible is the primary source of theology and doctrine, with three others being tradition, reason and experience. The sense of being connected is how the Church as a whole should be structured. At its heart is an understanding of the Christian community as the 'body of Christ '.
