Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

The diversity inside the Church should be respected and supported. Open debate within the Church on certain political and social issues should be encouraged.

Views

Christians with different approaches should be engaged with each other to discuss how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
