Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.

Views

Church members should meet regularly in order to be accountable to each other about how each person was living the Christian life.
