Religion

Baptism is something you do in obedience to God, but it is not essential for salvation. In other words, salvation is something God does for us, while baptism is something we do for God.

Politics

Christian men and women should pursue positions of public leadership and service within the government at the local, state, and federal levels.

Views

The purpose of every individual is to develop a dynamic, intricate, and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
