Pro-Life Ministry

 

The Problem

Since 1973 over 60 million babies have been aborted; that is 3,000 babies a day in the USA, 400 per month right here in Aurora, Illinois. 

The Solution

We believe God gives life and He gives it intentionally. Psalm 139:13-14 states "For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." 

We envision a future and culture where abortion is unthinkable, not just illegal. We pray for the closure of Planned Parenthood and other abortion centers. 

Even more, we pray for a culture where women and men faced with pregnancy choices are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are empowered to choose life for their child.
