The Methodist Church, along with the whole Christian community, believes that each person has a value and dignity which comes directly from Gods creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things, this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefor protect them from harm
