MISSION, VISION, & CORE VALUES
To love people to life before, during and after a pregnancy decision.
To build a vibrant community where every life is valued, loved, protected and transformed because of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
God’s Word, the Bible, is the foundation of our Core Values.
We Wait on God
We wait on God and the power of His Word because we are confident of who He is and what He is able to do. We wait on Him with confident expectation and trust Him to act, lead, respond, direct, and provide.
Psalm 62:1, 5: “For God alone my soul waits in silence...my hope is from him.”
We Champion Love
We champion love by loving God and loving people as He loves them. Not one person, circumstance, sin, or story will find the end of His love expressed through us. We choose to be imitators of Christ and His great love for us; for His love unleashes life!
Ephesians 5:1-2: “You are the children that God dearly loves. So be just like him. Lead a life of love, just as Christ did. He loved us and gave himself for us...”
We Extend Grace
We extend grace because we are recipients of unlimited grace. Leading others to the free and redemptive grace of God is our greatest privilege.
Romans 3:23: “...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came through Christ Jesus.”
We Demonstrate Truth
We demonstrate the Truth who is Christ Jesus. We live in a culture that clings to “my truth” rather than The Truth. We will be living demonstrations of His unchanging Truth regarding life, love, marriage, family, and sexuality, as given to us in the Word of God.
III John 1:3-4: “Some believers came to me and told me that you are faithful to the truth.... I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are living by the truth.”
We Value Every Life
We value every life from conception to natural death; those with great ability to those with limits on their abilities.
God has created each in His own image and has a plan for them. We care for every life; mother, father, child (both born and unborn) because of their great value to God and to us.
Genesis 1:26: “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. “
We Respect Choice
We respect choice because God gives us the freedom to choose. We trust His work in the lives of others as they are presented with important life choices. We provide godly guidance and will always point them to God’s best plan for their life.
Jer. 29:11-12: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future…when you seek me…I will be found by you and bring you back from captivity.”
We Foster Wholeness
We foster wholeness because God has intricately woven us together. He intends for every aspect of our being; physical, relational, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional, to be healthy and free to live the abundant life He has promised.
Proverbs 4:23 “And above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
We Cultivate Community
We cultivate community by caring for our neighbors as God has instructed. It is important for us to engage with men, women, families, schools, churches, and other organizations to ensure a thriving community.
I Peter 4:10: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
