SCRIPTURE TELLS US we're fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). This divine view of humanity is what drives Life Matters Worldwide to courageously challenge others to value everyone God has made.

From local churches to pregnancy care centers, our focus is to unite, encourage, and build community around what the Bible says about valuing people, in an embodiment of Christ's love.

—Eric Verstraete, President

The Local Church

Our vision is to see local churches all over the world engaged in compassionate sanctity of human life ministry as they fulfill the Great Commission. One of our goals is to train God's people for pro-life ministry in their churches and communities. Toward that end, we create materials and ministry opportunities with local churches in mind.

Pregnancy Care Centers

As we help the Body of Christ articulate the biblical pro-life message in word and deed, we partner with like-minded ministries such as pregnancy care centers. Our focus is to help establish and sustain them as effective Gospel outreaches through consultation and the development of resources.

Because abortion and assisted suicide are worldwide threats, and because we receive many requests for help from outside the U.S., our vision includes working with local churches all over the world.  Since the 1990s, Life Matters Worldwide has sought to foster relationships and form strategic partnerships with mission agencies. We aim to provide missionaries with training in pro-life ministries that will enhance overseas church planting efforts.
