Sexual Abuse Prevention

Vine Street Baptist Church condemns sexual abuse and misconduct in all of its forms. We continually seek to affirm victims and survivors of sexual abuse, creating a culture of transparency, accountability, justice, and healing. We actively strive for the church to be a place of safety for all people through our policies, practices, and personal interactions. We will be an advocate for the oppressed, equipping them with the resources they need. 

A hotline has been established to allow persons to file confidential reports regarding sexual abuse in churches and agencies affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The hotline can be contacted by phone and email: 


Survivors will be notified of the available options for care and will be put in touch with an advocate. All information will remain confidential. For further information about the Southern Baptist Convention’s response to sexual abuse, please visit the following link:
