As a community of Christ-followers, we seek to be a place where each person can experience the love, compassion, healing, and forgiveness that God pours out on us in Jesus Christ. This means being a congregation where all can worship and grow in their faith free from abuse and where those who have been victimized by abuse can receive support in their journey toward healing. In instituting this policy, we commit to protecting and supporting the value and dignity of each person, especially the most vulnerable among us, and to being a community that makes every effort to prevent abuse in our midst. 

Love always protects - 1 Corinthians 13:17
