Abuse violates human dignity and can have devastating, life-long impacts. Abuse is mistreatment of or violence toward a person. It can take many forms, such as physical, sexual, psychological or economic abuse or neglect.
God calls us to care for the vulnerable and to uphold each person’s human dignity. Every person is created by God, in His image, and loved by Him. This compels us to respect and uphold each person’s inherent worth and to treat them as a bearer of God’s image.
As Christians, we seek to prevent abuse and restore persons hurt by it.
