PPL presents vision for equipping leaders for life affirming ministry at two Presbyterian assemblies Print E-mail

PCA booth 2017sm"Moving beyond statements and politics to being a pro-life church" was the topic addressed by PPL's Executive Director, Marie Bowen, at a PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) General Assembly Seminar. In her presentation, Bowen pointed to the common biblical foundation shared by PPL and the PCA that guides us to value every human life, born and unborn. She cast a vision for equipping leaders for life ministry in congregations.

A firm foundation: Christian theology & abortion Print E-mail
Written by Presbyterians Pro-Life   

babyhandsmPresbyterians Pro-Life has been around for almost 4 decades. It is appropriate that we take a little time for renovation. A look at our biblical foundation expressed in this 1995 publication, reveals a distinctly Presbyterian view of abortion. It is time to build something new upon it that helps us to equip more Presbyterians to live out the tenets of our faith by loving and promoting human life in hands on ways.

The vision to which Presbyterians Pro-Life calls the church is founded upon the central doctrines of the biblical faith of the church universal for two thousand years.

Rather we speak and act on the basis of the theology which the church has claimed as its own for centuries.

23 June 4As the Board of Directors of Presbyterians Pro-Life listens for God's voice and looks for evidence of his leading into the future, we build our ministry on a biblical foundation.

We Claim the Gift of the Holy Spirit

The church has always proclaimed that we are enabled to live as faithful disciples of Christ by the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are no longer dependent upon our own powers, or captive to our own desires and wills, but rather we are enabled to live by God's will and to walk in his ways by the Spirit of Christ living in us.
