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.


The commitment of individual Christians to work for social and political change should be recognized as a fully legitimate form of Christian discipleship.


Every Church member should be seeking in various ways to renew and expand the opportunities for Christian conversation about the things that matter.
