Religion

People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform people, and so they should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

Politics

Christians should engage the culture through discipleship and through participation in the democratic political process in order to fulfill the kingdom mandate taught in the Bible.
