Statement of Faith
The PassionLife community of directors, staff, volunteers, donors and prayer partners are united in the historic Christian faith, as articulated in the Apostles’ Creed.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried: he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy, catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen
Theological Conviction and Collaborative Effort
PassionLife is Protestant, Evangelical and primarily Reformed in doctrinal convictions and theological perspective. Our approach to bio-ethics training, pregnancy crisis intervention and, after-abortion trauma counseling are heavily influenced by these convictions.
Yet we strive to “play well with others.” When it comes to social reform—ending slavery in America, twin-killing in Africa, widow-burning in India, foot-binding in China, or abortion worldwide, Christians have always worked with others outside their theological perspective.
At some points we are theological co-belligerents. But if it seems right to work with others to rescue a child from a burning car, it seems right to collaborate where possible, to faithfully answer God’s call: “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24:11).
