Religion

Salvation is not based on an individual's fulfillment of God’s commands, but rather on Christ's fulfillment of them and of being united with him through faith.

Politics

Religious liberty is not merely the right to remain in the religion of one’s birth, but includes the right of anyone to change his religious loyalties without fear of persecution.

Views

It is important to experience of God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
