Religion

The life with Christ is not only to live in the atmosphere of your local church. God made his children creative, productive, and therefore able to make the whole world a better place.

Politics

People sometimes argue that involvement in political life involves getting our hands dirty, so is something Christians should avoid. But God is present in everything, including political institutions.

Views

As human beings people find themselves as part of an unjust, sinful and violent world, which we may feel individually helpless to change. If we accept forgiveness, God can enable us to resist evil and to live life to the full.
