Most Native Americans believe that in the universe there exists the Great Spirit – a spiritual force that is the source of all life.
The Great Spirit is not pictured as a man in the sky but it is believed to be formless and to exist throughout the universe.
The sun is viewed as a manifestation of the power of the Great Spirit.

Do the Beachy Amish-Mennonites believe that salvation can be earned through practice or tradition?
Salvation is a gift from God, available only through the ultimate sacrifice of Christ that ended all sacrifices, and made available by His resurrection, proving that now even death was under Christs dominion.

This is part of the fruit of which Christ speaks (Matthew ).
