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 us, and so we should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

Libelous language with regard to nationality, ethnic background, sexuality or gender does not assess the value of individual and contradicts the gospel of Jesus Christ.
