Faith, Duty and Ethical Standards
Living out ones faith in the work place can be difficult and the police and prison careers are no exception. There are unique temptations that an officer will face coupled with a trusted position in the community can cause very real pressures. Individual character can be tested at every level of our careers. It is the Christian officer’s duty to uphold biblical standards of living and performing various duties. The CPA encourages officers to take their stand in the area of ethics and morals. In order to add lasting value to society officers need to demonstrate their adherence to biblical ethics. Christian officers do not shy away from arresting offenders or maintaining discipline over those incarcerated. Officers reflect the character of Christ with the correct balance of justice, compassion and personal safety.
Leadership is provided by the Board of Directors of County Corrections Gospel Mission who actively support the purpose of the CPA. This body has recognized spiritual standing and leadership to guide administrative and pastoral policy, publicity and finance. The work of the CPA is entirely in faith and totally reliant on gifts and donations. Personal commitment to God and the vision He has given for the work of the ministry determines financial support.
