 Statement Of Faith

We, at A Woman's Friend, believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God. (This is not meant to exclude Roman Catholics who, while accepting this truth as to the Bible, also believe that God reveals His truths through the Church itself, inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit.)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and that this salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and not as a result of good works.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and to perform good works.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Statement of Principle

A Woman's Friend is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His church. Therefore, the Center, embodied in its volunteers, is committed to presenting the gospel of our Lord to women with crisis pregnancies--both in word and in deed. Commensurate with this purpose, those who labor as Center board members, staff, and volunteers are expected to know Christ as their Savior and Lord.

The Center is committed to providing its clients with accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion.

The Center is committed to assisting women to carry to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. Through the provision of God's people and the community at large, women may face the future with hope and plan constructively for themselves and their babies.

The Center never discriminates in providing services because of the race, creed, color, national origin, age, or marital status of its clients.

The Center never advises, provides, nor refers for abortion nor abortifacients.

The Center offers assistance free of charge at all times.

The Center is committed to creating an awareness within the local community of the needs of pregnant women and of the fact that abortion only compounds human need rather than resolving it.

The Center does not engage in contraceptive counseling or in referring for contraceptives or contraceptive services. (Married women seeking contraceptive information should be urged to seek counsel, along with their husbands, from their pastor and physician.)

The Center recognizes the validity of adoption as one alternative to abortion, but is not biased toward adoption when compared to the other life-saving alternatives. The Center is independent of adoption agencies, relating to them in the same manner as to other helpful referral sources. The Center receives no payments of any kind from these agencies, does not enter into contractual relationships with them, and does not share combined office space. Adoption agencies are not established under the auspices of the Center. The Center neither initiates nor facilitates independent adoptions.
