IGLESIA LUZ DE CRISTO
TO BRING GLORY TO GOD ALONE THROUGH THE PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL AND TO CHANGE UNJUST LAWS TO PROVIDE EQUAL PROTECTION FOR THE PREBORN.
ABOLISH ABORTION MARYLAND
More than 1 million abortions are performed each year in the United States. Since 1973, we estimate more than 52 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone. This is an act of murder. Every person who has an abortion and performs the abortion has murder in their heart regardless of the situation and the only victim is the baby.
We stand up for the pre-born person by conducting evangelistic missions at local abortion mills. There we proclaim the gospel out of love for the child's parents and all who hear the truth of God's Word, we distribute tracts, offer counsel and prayer, and work with the parent to find the best options for their child. Some of those options are references to resources such as Christian pregnancy centers, provision of baby items and food support, and even adoption. In addition, we work with other churches to speak out legislatively to put pressure on our government to change laws to save the lives of innocent babies.
We are followers of Christ who love the one true God with all of our hearts, souls, and might, and because we love Him, God has given us the heart to love our neighbors as ourselves. Therefore we have committed our lives to glorifying God by protecting our preborn neighbors and rescuing them from the murderous act of abortion through evangelism, follow-up care, and legislative advocacy.

We service a God who is justice and righteous. It is He who places leaders into their positions of authority (Romans 13) so that they obey the God’s law and uphold justice. God declares in Isaiah 1:17 that we are to “learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression” and “when justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers” (Proverbs 21:15). Therefore, it is crucial for the church to “speak out on behalf of the voiceless, and for the rights of all who are vulnerable” (Proverbs 31:8) and stand up against tyranny and unjust laws. Through legislative efforts, we demand the immediate and total abolition of abortion. We work to change laws to provide equal protection for all humans inside and outside the womb. We believe those who break God’s law and participate in modern-day child sacrifice must be held accountable.
