In light of recent events surrounding the hiring polices of faith-based organizations, World Relief has issued the following statement:
Established as the humanitarian arm of the National Associations of Evangelicals in 1944, World Relief mobilizes local churches to serve the most vulnerable worldwide through core strategies such as economic development, community health, disaster relief, and refugee resettlement. World Relief is committed to the principles of the Christian faith as expressed in the Bible, including the definition of marriage as a sacred covenant between a man and a woman. We ask our employees and volunteers to live lives worthy of God’s call, reflecting the entire biblical vision, including fidelity within marriage and chastity outside of marriage. In our pursuit of these principles, we seek to follow the example of Jesus by serving all people, condemning no one, and loving all.
