Religion

Through Covenant each individual accepts the relationship with God. It is not about acquiring a relationship with God, but living within the loving relationship that God has already offered.

Politics

A believer should support social climates, in which human communities are maintained and strengthened for the sake of all persons and their growth.

Views

Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so members of a Christian society should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight.
