As Christians, God has not given us the option of inactivity. We are all aware of the current practice of abortion. God warns us in Proverbs 24:10-12 that He holds us accountable:
"If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength! Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter. If you say, "but we knew nothing about this," does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? We He not repay each person according to what he has done?"
We believe it is inconsistent to hold to a fundamental view of Scripture without accepting the fact that God is able and willing to repay both our obedience and disobedience in full measure. Therefore, we at The Vine Pregnancy Center, we see our ministry as being not only legitimate and appropriate, but as being demanded by Scripture.
Since our origin and day-to-day operations are based on Scripture, it seemed fitting to formulate this statement concerning Scripture and what Scripture says about abortion in order to assure you that our ministry is both legitimate and appropriate.
The Vine Pregnancy Center's mission is to fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all our clients. We will seek to educate women through our Christian ministry, by offering information, counseling, and practical assistance to women in unexpected pregnancies. We do not provide for or refer our clients for abortion services. We do not provide contraceptive resources We are a ministry that promotes the Sanctity of Human Life.

Statement of Faith:
The inspiration, inerrancy and authority of the Bible alone as the written Word of God. Through Scripture, God binds the conscience and the authority of the church is subordinate to His Word. One God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our Doctrinal Statement:
"The unborn child is consistently referred to as a human being created by God and is included in God's plan from the moment of conception..."
Job 31:15 "Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One make us both within our mothers?"
Psalm 139:13 " You created my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb."
Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart."
Luke 1:15 "And He will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from His mother's womb.
"God, being the Creator, retains sole ownership of human life..."
Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder."
Luke 18:20 "You know the commandments: "Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal..."
James 2:11 "He who said, "Do not commit adultery" also said, "Do not murder."
"Therefore, since the child is a human being, and since Scripture defines the taking of human life outside the context of justice as being murder, we are convinced that the current laws regarding liberalized abortion are sinful in the most profound sense..."
Proverbs 6:17 "There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him: hands that shed innocent blood..."
Proverbs 31:8-9 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
