Who we are?
Christian Democrats in Finland (KD) is part of a wide and diverse world-wide Christian Democratic movement. In the EU-level we are a member of the European People’s Party (EPP). We also maintain close co-operation with other Nordic Christian Democratic parties. Read more about EPP and other international co-operation.
What we value?
Decision-making is always about values. Well-being cannot be built on material values alone. We Christian Democrats want to build a society that is rooted on the enduring Judeo-Christian values. Relationships, respect for others and moral standards are a foundation in any activity: from family life to the business world as well as political decision making, too.
We respect human dignity and want to work for common good and the well-being of everyone. We want to build a just and caring society with possibilities to progress and prosper. We defend the position of less advantaged citizens. We encourage entrepreneurship, as well as taking responsibility for family, neighborhoods, and the nature. We defend the right of everyone to express their opinions and beliefs freely.
