A Public Statement Concerning Sexual Abuse in the Church

July 17th, 2013, GRACE released this public statement signed by over 70 Christian leaders registering our concern for survivors and resolve to confront the growing crisis of abuse and cover-up within the Body of Christ.

This statement was made in the wake of the scandals brewing over the institutional cover-up in Sovereign Grace Ministries (now Sovereign Grace Churches).


Protecting an institution or organization rather than a living, breathing lamb is to love ministry more than God and to value a human name or institution more than the peerless name of Jesus.
