Religion

Baptism should only be administered to individuals who are capable of understanding the true meaning of the rite and also capable of understanding faith.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

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 '.
