Personhood Education New York, Inc. is faith based and Christ centered, but is open to working with all people for the cause of life.
We hold that a human being is that which is created in the image of God, which we affirm to be permanently present at the moment of conception. This implies that all human beings from the moment of conception to natural death maintain certain rights inherent to personhood which no human authorities, in the case of all innocent persons, are permitted to revoke. We hold that in Christ laying claim on all power and authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18) He alone has authority over life and death, and so it is not only a crime against humanity but an assault against the supremacy of Christ for any person or institution to claim rights over the life and death of persons.

PENY embraces the Biblical Sexual and Reproductive Ethics. The basis for the organization’s ethical and moral standards is found in the Bible. In terms of sexual identification and behavior, we affirm that any sexual activity outside the context of the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman is sinful before God and therefore inconsistent with the values and principles of the organization. Within these limits, we grant acceptance to Applicants who do not engage in or promote sexual immorality of any kind, or engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the organization.
