Archbishop ++Alexander’s Beliefs

He believes that God’s Word teaches we are to serve all faiths without the restrictions of church doctrines created by man-made rules. He has found that in order to live according to the Word of God no denomination truly exists except that of Jew and Gentile. This makes all followers of Christ brothers and and sisters according to God’s Word. As Jesus taught us, we are to love one another regardless of race, creed, color, or denomination with the infallibity of man. We are to love on another unconditionally as we love ourselves. (Mark 12:31) We must always hold them up in prayer (James 5:16) and without judgement (Matt 7:1). Where there is love, God can be found, for God is love.
