Statement of Faith

 

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Adapted from the National Association of Evangelical’s statement of faith.

Mission Statement

 
We exist to empower women and men to make life-affirming decisions regarding pregnancy, as well as the value of abstinence before marriage through counseling, education, compassionate care, material aid and through the gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

VISION

 
The Crisis Pregnancy Center of the Wabash Valley is the primary organization that comes to mind when an individual faces an unplanned pregnancy, STD or HIV concern.

CORE VALUES

 

 

CORE COMPETENCIES

 

 

Statement of Purpose

 

  1. The Crisis Pregnancy Center is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His Church. Therefore, the CPC, embodied in its volunteers, is committed to presenting the gospel of our Lord to women with crisis pregnancies – both in word and in deed. Those who labor as CPC board members, staff, and volunteers are expected to know Christ as their Savior and Lord.
  2. The CPC will provide accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion to women with problem pregnancies.
  3. Because the CPC is founded on the principle that all human life is sacred from the moment of conception, and because abortion ends human life prematurely and unnaturally, the CPC will not advise, provide, or refer for abortion or abortifacients. Rather, the CPC will provide counseling designed to assist women to find an appropriate alternative.
  4. The CPC is committed to assisting women to carry their unborn children to term and plan constructively for their future by providing both emotional and spiritual support as well as practical assistance.
  5. The CPC is committed to creating an awareness within the local Christian community of the needs of women with problem pregnancies.
  6. The CPC will offer assistance to women with problem pregnancies free of charge.
  7. The CPC will not engage in contraceptive counseling, referrals, or services. However, we do provide abstinence counseling and encourage abstinence as an appropriate lifestyle before marriage.
  8. The CPC will not operate as an adoption service.
  9. The CPC will not discriminate in providing services because of the race, creed, color, national origin, age, or marital status of its clients.

 

Volunteer Pledge

 

Recognizing that the pregnancy center is a Christian ministry, I openly acknowledge my personal faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I have read the Statement of Faith and am in complete agreement with all statements in it.

I believe in the sanctity of human life as taught in the Bible and, therefore, reject abortion as an acceptable option for any woman facing a crisis pregnancy, except to save the life of the mother in some cases.

I believe in chastity outside of marriage and in the sanctity of marriage as taught in the Bible. Therefore, I commit to a lifestyle of sexual purity.

I accept the responsibility to act as an advocate on behalf of the women under my care; to give accurate information, emotional support, and spiritual guidance. I will keep all information on center clients in the strictest confidence, in accordance with center policies. I will consistently uphold the center’s policies relating to confidentiality, even after I am no longer a volunteer.

Understanding the vital role volunteers play in the work of the center, I commit myself to faithfully serve (hours) per week on a regular basis. Additionally, I agree to attend volunteer staff meetings and in-service training sessions.

I have read, understood and agree with the center Statement of Principle and will at all times uphold it, as well as all policies and procedures established by the board of directors and executive director.
