Statement on the Sanctity of Human Life

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Because every human bears God's image, human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death or death by God-ordained penalty (Romans 13). We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Ps 139).
