I agree and wholeheartedly support the Mission & Vision Statements of Coastal Choices Women's Clinic
...that the Bible is the infallible and authoritative Word of God and that it is inspired by theHoly Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 1:1)
...that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and theHoly Spirit. The ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit empowers us to live Godly lives and toexpress our personal faith in good works.(Mathew 28:19; Mathew 3:16-17; Galatians 4:4-6; Genesis 1:1-2; John 15:26; Ephesians2:10; James 1:20; James 2:17-18)
...in the humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, Hismiracles, His vicarious crucifixion and atoning death, His bodily burial and resurrection. Webelieve in His personal ascension to the right hand of the Father where He now ministersas our Great High Priest and His future personal return to the earth in power and glory.(John 1:14; 1 Corinthians 15:1-6; Hebrews 7:26; Luke 21:27; Revelation 22:20)
...that there is only one way to salvation, and that is through Jesus and His redemptivework on the cross. “Whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”.(Hebrews 5:9; John 3:16; John 14: 6; Ephesians 2:13; Romans 10:13)
...that man is created in the image of God, and each child in the womb is personally known and formed by God. God is the giver of Life. Human Life begins at conception, andis a treasure from God to be nurtured and protected.(Genesis 1:27; Acts 17:25; Psalm 139)
...that because of the Fall, each member of the human race is sinful and in need ofsalvation. Salvation is a gift of God, based upon the finished work of Christ on the cross.“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is thegift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.”(Ephesians 2:8-9; Ephesians 2: 1-5, 12-13; Romans 3:9-18, 23, 27; Romans 4: 1-4; Titus 3:4-5; 2 Timothy 1:8-9; Isaiah 44:20)
...in the resurrection of the saved to everlasting life and the resurrection of the unsaved toeverlasting damnation. (John 4:36)
... in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our head and we are thebody, made to accomplish His works.(Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 1:20-23; Ephesians 4:3-6)
...that there is One God and One Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus. Hissacrifice for our sins was once for all and eternal. (Hebrews 10:10, 12-14; Romans 3:30; 1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 6:10)
I have read and agree with the above Statement of Faith for Coastal Choices Women’s Clinic.
It is essential for any staff or volunteer to be able to make a commitment to the Pregnancy Center ministry in the following 5 areas:
Each client will have a series of sometimes tough choices to make (ie, whether a client should parent or place her child for adoption Be aware of your own preferences where Scripture is not black and white, and be careful not to impose those preferences on your client.
The bottom line is, as a Christian, you are called to uphold Biblical truths, not to impose your cultural or personal values on others. This means that you must know what the Bible says. Being in the word daily is the best way to know God's word, and then leave the rest to Him.
A commitment to confidentiality.
When people hear that you are involved in a Crisis Pregnancy Center, or Pregnancy Help Center, they may disclose information to you out of a sense of trust about their personal life, or the personal life of someone dear to them. To maintain the integrity of this ministry, it is vital that you keep your commitment to confidentiality. If people believe that we will "talk" about them, this cripples the ministry from the start, and it will cripple our effectivenessin the future for reaching out to the lost.
Some guidelines: do not talk about people in front of other people; do not give out information without written permission from that person; keep prayer requests as general as possible; teenagers should be encouraged to tell their parents about their pregnancy- however, you should never break confidentiality and tell a person's parents without her permission; if the client tells you or you suspect there is physical or sexual abuse in a situation, you are legally obligated to report that to the authorities.
A commitment to serving with a clear conscience.
"A clear conscience is essential in loving others." What goes on inside your heart affects your ability to respond in love to others.
"Your conscience affects your faith. Confidence that you are walking with God grows from a clear and pure conscience, not from a perfect life-from God's forgiveness, not from your works."
"A guilty conscience slowly but surely erodes the confidence to lead."
"A clear conscience is essential to having an effective ministry of any kind. As you witness to others, it is essential they find nothing that demeans the person of Christ."
I, the undersigned, have read and agree with the above Five Essential Commitments for Coastal Choices Women's Clinic and will uphold them to the best of my ability with the help of the Holy Spirit.
I, the undersigned, have read and agree with the above Statement of Principle for Coastal Choices Women's Clinic.
In addition, said employee or volunteer shall assume all legal & financial responsibilities associated with pursuance of any adoption.
I, the undersigned, have read and agree with the above Policy on Adoption for Coastal Choices Women's Clinic.
I agree to walk in integrity as a staff member, board member, or volunteer at CCWC and to commit myself to chastity (abstinence before marriage and fidelity during marriage) and to a lifestyle consistent with all the life-affirming values CCWC teaches to its clients.
I, the undersigned, have read, understand, & and agree to abide by the Chastity and Life- Affirming Values Agreement for Coastal Choices Women's Clinic.
