Safeguarding Policy for United Methodist Church in the Nordic and Baltic Episcopal Area, with special attention to children and youth
The purpose of this policy is to protect the children, youth, and vulnerable adults in the United Methodist Church, to protect all paid or volunteer persons, and to protect the church.
As Christians we believe that each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from God’s creation in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things, this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.
