Volunteer counselors can volunteer their time in one of three different shifts during a day,. The morning shift is from 10-1pm, the afternnon shift is from 1-5 pm and the evening shift is from 7-9 pm.

Organizational Statement of Faith


STATEMENT OF FAITH We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 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. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and that the salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as savior and lord and not as a result of good works. 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. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLE The pregnancy center is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His church. Therefore, the pregnancy center, embodied in its volunteers, is committed to presenting the Gospel of our Lord to women with crisis pregnancies in both in word and deed. All staff and volunteers are expected to know Christ as their Savior and Lord. The pregnancy center is committed to providing clients with accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion. The pregnancy center is committed to integrity in dealing with clients, earning their trust and providing promised information and services. The pregnancy center denounces any form of deception in its corporate advertising or individual conversations with clients. The pregnancy center is committed to assisting women to carry to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. The pregnancy center does not discriminate in providing services because of race, creed, color national origin, age or marital status of its clients. The pregnancy center does not recommend, provide, or refer for abortion or abortifacients. The pregnancy center offers assistance free of charge at all times. The pregnancy center is committed to creating awareness within the local community of the needs of pregnant women, and of the fact that abortion only compounds human need rather than resolving it. The pregnancy center does not recommend, provide, or refer single women for contraceptives. (Married women seeking contraceptive information should be urged to seek counsel, along with their husbands, from their pastor or physician.) The pregnancy center recognizes adoption as one alternative to abortion, but is not biased toward adoption when compared with other life-saving alternatives. The RPC is independent of adoption agencies, relating to them in the same manner as to other helpful referral sources. Pregnancy centers receive no payment of any kind from these agencies, do not enter into contractual relationships with them, and do not share combined office space. Adoption agencies are not established under the auspices of centers. Pregnancy centers neither initiate nor facilitate independent adoptions, though they may refer for independent adoptions in states where it is legal.
