Domestic Abuse

Safe at Home - Saying 'No!' to Domestic Abuse

The Seventh-day Adventist Church places great importance on family life and affirms the dignity and worth of each human being. It decries all forms of physical, spiritual, economic, sexual, emotional and psychological abuse. Such behaviour undermines our biblical and moral values and destroys the trust between people within our community.

Jointly with our sister department Women's Ministries, we support the End It Now initiative which seeks to end of all types of abuse against women globally.
