Religion

Salvation is not based on an individual's fulfillment of God’s commands, but rather on Christ's fulfillment of them and of being united with him through faith.

Politics

Christians should engage the culture through discipleship and through participation in the democratic political process in order to fulfill the kingdom mandate taught in the Bible.

Views

Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so members of a Christian society should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight.
