Religion

God offers a loving relationship. The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. God has freely and graciously already made it possible.

Views

Church decisions should be made as openly as possible, giving opportunities for all to contribute. It is important for all views to be heard and taken seriously, especially where Christians disagree.
