Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I also believe we as a community of Christians must operate by one of Jesus' last commandments to his apostles: To love, as he loved. Jesus loved all people, however, I've noticed in the world today, we as Christians are not showing love to all people regardless of their circumstances, beliefs or values. We can still love people, respect them and honor them, even if we don't agree. We must learn to be disagreeable and still honor and respect our fellow humans.
