As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.

Principles of Leadership

National leaders on all sides fail miserably in providing righteous leadership. What does that involve? Godly leaders seek God’s direction (Proverbs 16:1), are modest not arrogant (Proverbs 16:5), are peacemakers (Proverbs 16:7), avoid conceit (Philippians 2:3), are real servants (Matthew 20:26, Luke 22:26), get a lot of advice (Proverbs 11:14), choose godliness not wickedness (Proverbs 29:2), are honest people who fear God and hate bribes (Exodus 18:21; Proverbs 29:4), judge the poor fairly (Proverbs 29:14), consider the least (Matthew 10:42, Matthew 25:40), and the lost (Luke 19:10), serve (John 13:1-17), and are living sacrifices (Romans 12).
