Religion

Christ died on the cross to give humans the promise of everlasting life, but this requires that each individual accepts Christ into his life and asks for forgiveness.

Politics

All Christians should vote in accordance with biblical values rather than according to party lines, personalities, or candidate rhetoric.

Views

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 '.
