The Sheltering Church Movement proclaims:

"As the family of God in an unforgiving world, we pledge our friendship and care to any woman in a crisis pregnancy, because God values her life and the human life she carries.

"Therefore, we promise to the abortion-tempted woman that through our Sheltering Church she can receive the resources she needs -- free of charge, if necessary --- to avoid abortion's spiritual, physical and emotional pain and to find a welcoming family among us.

"We extend Jesus Christ's forgiveness and healing to all who have been affected by abortion, including the biological father. As Christ's family, we joyfully receive children and affirm the goodness of adoption.

"We also pledge our time and money to support those efforts that make it possible to extend this free offer of hospitality to threatened lives."

The Sheltering Church Movement responds in the spirit of Christian hospitality and love and offers life to women facing difficult pregnancies. This is more than putting a band-aid on the problem. The Movement is the church as family. It addresses people, not just the process and brings about lasting, even eternal change.
