Religion

No one is less important than another, and no one can be thought of as unnecessary. Every single person is vital to God and to each of us.

Politics

The belief in religious freedom and its corollary, the separation of the institutions of church and state, come from the commitment to the authority of the Bible.

Views

A person’s joy comes through relationships rather than purpose. In fact, it is the relationships that give meaning to services, ministries, and zeal.
