What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Christian Life Resources fills an unmet need to provide education to those who don’t know what God’s Word really says about a multitude of life and family issues. Our information combines the unfailing truths found in God’s Word with objective facts and presents clear answers to the questions society raises about various issues.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to be a positive influence which changes hearts to be focused on God’s will rather than on earthly goals.

At Christian Life Resources we serve three groups of people: Christians who have unanswered questions or are facing a difficult decision for which they need guidance; the spiritual leaders of our churches and schools; and our pregnancy care affiliates who are on the front lines helping both Christians and non-Christians involved in an unexpected life choice. We assist all three groups through a myriad of support and education.

All of our education and counsel is founded on the principle that the Bible is the true Word of God and that every statement in the Bible is the truth. We base our answers to the questions presented to us on this principle, seeking our guidance from Scripture and supporting our answers with those Biblical truths.

The national office provides counsel to clergy, teachers, and lay people on a wide range of life- and family-related topics. It is a resource center of materials and services on these issues. Most importantly, the national office educates others on the perspective of God’s Word as it relates to these issues.

Today, our organization consists of pregnancy care centers across the United States. These centers are visited by approximately 11,000 clients each year. Our network of pregnancy care affiliates offer a warm heart, listening ear and helping hand along with a wealth of information to guide those involved in an unexpected life choice.

Christian Life Resources founded and supports New Beginnings – A Home for Mothers, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This program began in 1993 in response to the needs of single mothers and their newborns by providing residence and assistance in spiritual, academic, and vocational concerns.
