Sermons on Life
(A number of these sermons are from "Fearfully & Wonderfully Made" a 1995 collection of sermons published by PPL which is now out of print. Others have been added more recently)
( 5 Articles )
PPL has a vast array of materials related to issues at the beginning and ending of life that are useful for educating church leaders and members about life issues. These materials are all founded upon the central doctrines of the biblical faith of the church universal for two thousand years. We have not introduced something new into the theology of the church by opposing abortion and calling the church to be a community in which the love of God is demonstrated in concrete ways. Our materials include brochures, booklets, books, packets, and a DVD curriculum.
Pregnant With Promise

We call the Church to support women in problem pregnancies in sacrificially compassionate and loving ways that allow both mother and child to live and be blessed by God.
We call the Church to provide tangible help and a community of belonging for women and children in need.
We call the Church to support and promote adoption and the many community pregnancy care ministries that provide alternatives to abortion.
We call the Church to hold up high standards of morality for the children in our congregations and to nurture and support family life.
We call the Church to extend the means fo grace to those involved in abortion, to lead them gently to repentance and to aid their full restoration of fellowship with their heavenly Father and with the body of Christ, the Church.

God is the LORD of Life!
Scripture reveals God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Sovereign Lord over all human life.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; maile and female he created them." (Genesis 1:26)
"In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men."(John 1:4)
Many churches set aside one Sunday in January to observe the God given value of human life. PPL's publishes a bulletin insert each year that churches may download and print at no cost. Click on the picture for a larger image of this year's 2 page insert. The links below lead to other PPL resources to assist churches in celebrating God's gift of life in January, or any time of the year. Other appropriate times might include (but are not limited to) October Respect Life month, November Adoption Month & Down Syndrome Day, or even Reformation Sunday focusing on God's creation and redemption of human life.
