Who We Are

Many approaches to Internet safety miss the mark. The Internet is an amazing thing, but if we are going to use it responsibly we need to first apply our real world values to online life.

  • Net safety is not merely about using good technology, such as filters or parental controls. It is about using the Web with real character.
  • Net safety is not merely for children and students, but also for parents and educators.
  • Net safety is not merely about avoiding the pitfalls of the Internet, but promoting a positive Web experience.
  • Net safety is not about quick fixes, but about being accountable to others in how we use the Web.

Take advantage of our videos, blog posts, or full-length articles to learn more about how you can apply Christian values to using the World Wide Web.
