Religion

No one is beyond the reach of God's love. Salvation is there for everyone who turns to God, and not just for a chosen few.

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

Every Christian should study the Bible that contains a variety of inspirational and thoughtful ideas in the field of history, law, and poetry.
