Christian Code of Conduct

Christian Code of Conduct:

“…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

  • We are conscious of the fact that everything we do, directly or indirectly, has the potential to reflect upon Anchor of Hope as a whole.
  • All clients are served without regard to age, race, income, nationality, religious affiliation, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or other arbitrary circumstances.
  • We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with the mission of this organization.
  • We hold ourselves to the highest possible standard of conduct, always striving to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.
  • All of our communications and advertising are truthful, honest, and accurately describe the services we offer.
  • We operate in accordance with all applicable laws and regulatory requirements. Specifically, all medical services are provided in accordance with applicable laws and in accordance with pertinent medical standards, under the supervision and direction of a licensed physician.
  • We respect confidentiality and only disclose information as required by law or as otherwise authorized by the client/patient.
  • We believe that all human life is created by God and is sacred from the moment of conception to natural death. This includes pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death.
  • We oppose abortion. In the rare situation where the life of the mother is at risk, everything possible should be done to save both the mother and the child.
  • We give accurate information about pregnancy, fetal development, lifestyle issues, and related concerns.
  • We do not offer, recommend or refer for abortions or abortifacients, but we are committed to offering accurate information about abortifacients, abortion procedures, and risks.
  • We believe the Bible is the authoritative Word of God and provides guidance for our lives.
  • We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other.
  • We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. Therefore, all staff and volunteers commit to a lifestyle of sexual purity, and will refrain from engaging in any sexual relationships outside the bonds of Christian marriage.
  • We are governed by a board of directors and operate in accordance with our articles of incorporation, by laws, and stated purpose and mission.
  • All Board members, staff, volunteers and other representatives of Anchor of Hope shall agree with Anchor of Hope’s Statement of Faith, profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, hold a solid prolife position on abortion, and live a lifestyle consistent with biblical values.
  • All “conflict of interest” relationships will be avoided with Board members, staff, suppliers, those we serve, and other organizations with whom we deal, unless disclosed and approved.
  • No one will accept gifts or favors which might influence the performance of their responsibilities.
