Statement of Principles

  1. Life First is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His Church. Therefore, Life First, embodied in its personnel, is committed to presenting the Gospel of our Lord to women, men and families with unplanned pregnancies—both in word and in deed. Commensurate with this purpose, those who labor as Life First’ Board members, Advisory Council, Trustees, Staff and Volunteers are expected to know Christ as their Savior and Lord. Life First is committed to seeking the best for those affected by an unplanned pregnancy. While we understand that ultimately, the mother has to make her own choice, we believe that abortion is destructive and that, given the means, most would choose life for their unborn babies, despite the difficulties this choice would bring.
  2. Life First is committed to providing its clients with accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion.
  3. Life First is committed to integrity in dealing with clients, earning their trust and providing promised information and services. Life First denounce any form of deception in its corporate advertising or individual conversations with its clients.
  4. Life First 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, their babies and families.
  5. Life First does not discriminate in providing services because of race, creed, color, national origin, age or marital status of its clients.
  6. Life First does not recommend, provide or refer for abortion or abortifacients.
  7. Life First offers assistance free of charge at all times. Life First is committed to creating awareness within the local community of the
    needs of pregnant women and their families, and of the fact that abortion only compounds human need rather than resolving it.
  8. Life First does not recommend, provide, or refer single women or men for contraceptives. Married couples seeking contraceptive information should be urged to seek counsel from their pastor and physician.
  9. Life First is committed to maintaining Biblical sexual purity, which includes abstinence until marriage, and monogamous heterosexual relations within the covenant of marriage
