Religion

Creeds should be rejected as they may compromise a believer’s obligation to interpret the Bible under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Politics

Racism is sin because it disregards the image of God in all people and denies the truth of the Gospel that believers are all one in Him.

Views

People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
