Religion

It is vital to meet and worship with other Christians in order to grow in the Christian life and to understand what is God's will for people and for their communities.

Politics

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

A true Christian should help those in need, regardless of religious affiliation.
