The teaching of the Bible is a key in understanding the way by which a person obtains salvation.


All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.


Holiness is not just about personal spirituality and prayer. It will also be expressed through a commitment to social justice and enabling other people to become followers of Jesus.
