Religion

Since a human being is the central factor in the plan of salvation, the Gospel must be taught, understood and accepted by him.

Politics

All human life is created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

The supportive small group inside the Church is the most powerful tool for people to feel that they belong and also to learn and grow.
