Results: Christ as the creator and savior of the world is the focalpoint from which the group starts it´s reasoning. Christ is also the one they strive to enter into communion with. People can take part in this communion in many different ways, they can actively seek and consciously make efforts to enter into this relation through being a member of a local church. But Christ being the lord and creator of the world can in itself work salvation and communion for people without them being conscious of this fact.
The primary expression of the church manifests itself in the meeting and dialogue between people in the local congregation. The meeting and communion with people rather than principles about specific religious actions are seen as the backbone of the church.
The domination notion for the group when it comes to theology of religions is inclusivistic. Christ is viewed as absolutely unique, but as creator and savior he has free entrance to the world and the people thereof and can according to this work salvation for whoever he wants to, even those that confess other religions than the christian.
