Religion

The teaching of the Bible is a key in understanding the way by which a person obtains salvation.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

Holiness is not just about personal spirituality and prayer. It will also be expressed through a commitment to social justice and enabling other people to become followers of Jesus.
