Why Making Life Disciples

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."—James 1:27

Abortion in the Church 

At Care Net, we believe that “life decisions need life support,” and the church is God's instrument to provide life support to women, men, and families to empower them to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families. 

James 1:27 compels us to care for orphans (who are children without fathers) and widows (who are women without husbands). Accordingly, God created His church to, among other things, fight to protect the unborn, end abortion, and strengthen families.

However, according to data from The Guttmacher Institute, 54% of women who have abortions identify themselves as Christians. Our research found that 4 in 10 women were regularly attending church at the time of their abortion. 

These high numbers are a challenge and an opportunity for the church to become more actively involved in saving the unborn from abortion.

But the challenge in far too many communities, especially urban communities, is that:
1) urban areas are home to many abortion clinics,
2) urban areas see a disproportionately high number of abortions,
3) urban areas generally contain very few life-affirming pregnancy centers.

The Solution -- Making Life Disciples

However, many of these communities, especially urban ones, have active churches that are wellCOLD_CareNet_DVD_3D.jpg-positioned to support women and men facing pregnancy decisions.

To that end, Care Net has developed a one-of-its-kind curriculum called Making Life Disciples (MLD). MLD will equip the Church to provide compassion, hope, help, and discipleship to women and men considering abortion.

MLD is a 6-session DVD curriculum for the church that will give your church everything it needs to start a Making Life Disciples ministry at your church. You will be guided by leaders of the pro-life and pregnancy center movements on how to set up your ministry, how to work with women and men facing pregnancy decisions, how to partner with pregnancy centers, and how to make disciples for Christ through the work of ministering to women and men during a time of great need.
