Statement of Faith

Heart of the Cumberland's staff, board and volunteers believe that the Bible is the Word of God; there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and will come again in power and glory; people are saved by grace through faith in Jesus, and that faith is expressed by confession and repentance; the Holy Spirit empowers believers to know and worship God.


Heart of the Cumberland, through its dedicated volunteers, staff, and boards, makes every effort to keep things shared by participants confidential and encourages group participants to do the same. Information given to Heart of the Cumberland will only be used for the express purpose for which it is gathered. All files are and will remain the exclusive property of Heart of the Cumberland. Participant contact information will be given to group facilitators. Our confidentiality policy will be strictly maintained except, but not limited to, the following:

  • Suicidal expression
  • Suspected physical, mental or sexual abuse which by law must be reported – Tennessee Code Annotated 37-1-403(i)(1)
  • Suspected drug or alcohol use/abuse by a child
  • Mandates of the courts

Mandatory reporting of suspected Child Abuse

According to the Tennessee Child Sexual Abuse Law, “Any person who knows or has reasonable cause to suspect that a child has been sexually abused shall report such knowledge or suspicion to the Tennessee DHS.” A Heart of the Cumberland volunteer who has reason to believe that a child has been subject to abuse or maltreatment must report it immediately to 1-877-237-0004.
