Religion

God has revealed and continues to reveal God's self through the Bible, through the created order, through mighty acts in history, and, preeminently, through God the Son, Jesus Christ.

Politics

Christians should be dedicated to the holy responsibility and privilege of loving people of all races and ethnicities in religious communities.

Views

The strong feature of Baptism is that prayers are not only led by a minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
