Religion

It is vital to meet and worship with other Christians in order to grow in the Christian life and to understand what is God's will for people and for their communities.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

Every person needs the Church for spiritual and emotional care that enables to reconcile relations with God, with others, and with self.
