Code of Conduct
To share in the ministry of Christ is a great privilege as well as a tremendous
responsibility. The privilege is the joy of sharing in the mission of Jesus Himself.
The responsibility is acting in a way that conforms to the attitude and actions of
Christ. As is evident in the Gospels, Jesus had a deep, abiding respect for each
human being and never did anything that harmed or misled people in their
personal or spiritual life.
The public needs to know that the Church is committed to protecting the
children/youth who are entrusted to its care and to ensuring that those offering
services are in right relationship with the children/youth receiving services.
There is a challenge in the Scriptures to "live in a manner worthy of the call you
have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one
another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond
of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3)
