Religion

The Bible is the only authoritative source of God's truth and any view that cannot be directly tied to a scriptural reference is generally considered to be based on human traditions rather than God's leading.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

Christianity is not merely a list or rules of what one can and cannot do, but rather a means to develop a close relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
