Government, War, and the Christian
We believe that a proper understanding of the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, and the Grace Apostle Paul requires all Christians to oppose not only personal violence towards one another, but institutional violence such as war and capital punishment. We instead promote our own understanding of Christian Pacifism, which centers on the unconditional love of our enemies. Paul instructed followers of Jesus to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15).
