Sanctity of Human Life Policy

Adopted at business meeting on October 21, 2015

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image (Genesis 2:7). Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions (Psalms 8:4-5), including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception (Psalms 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5) through natural death (Exodus 20:13). We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Psalm 139).
