I believe that God intended all people to be good, but sin changed all of that, making each and every one of us imperfect in multiple ways.

I believe that you cannot get to Heaven by being a good person alone. You need to know Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him, knowing that His death and resurrection atoned for our sins.

I believe that church is an important part of a Christian community, but that God does not get mad at you for missing the occasional service. It is so much deeper than the institutionalized form it has become.

I believe that no one should force their beliefs on others: free will is the beauty of grace.
