Graham has expressed inclusive views, suggesting that people without explicit faith in Jesus can be saved. In a 1997 interview with Robert Schuller, Graham said:
“I think that everybody that loves or knows Christ, whether they are conscious of it or not, they are members of the body of Christ… [God] is calling people out of the world for his name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because God has called them. They may not know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something they do not have, and they turn to the only light they have, and I think that they are saved, and they are going to be with us in heaven”.

The teaching of Jesus must take precedence over the doctrines of a later time, and Christian unity is to be sought, not in the uniformity of creed. Still, a common standard of duty and adherence to the commandments set out in the Holy Bible.

The Scriptures of the Holy Bible govern our faith asserts and upholds the right of every individual to search these scriptural records for themselves and to use reason and personal conscience to discover God’s Divine Truth removes Human Tests and Confessions of Faith that restrict private judgement and prevent free inquiry upholds the beautiful simplicity of the great commandments as defined by Jesus:
“You must love your God with all your heart, with all your soul and all your mind” and “You must love your neighbour as yourself.”
Church polity Congregation and Episcopal. The Christian Church defines congregationalism as that form of Church polity which rests on the independence and autonomy of each local church. According to this source, the principles of democracy in church government rest on the belief that Christ is the sole head of his church, the members are all priests unto God, and these units are regarded each as an outcrop and representative of the church universal. An episcopal polity is a hierarchical form of church governance (ecclesiastical polity) in which the chief local authorities are the Archbishop and the bishops. (The word bishop derives, via the Vulgar Latin ebiscopus, from the Ancient Greek episkopos meaning overseer) The structure used by many of the major Christian churches and denominations, such as Catholic, Eastern, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican and Lutheran churches or denominations, as well as other churches, founded independently from these lineages.
