CITIES4LIFE exists to engage, strengthen, and support local churches and Christians to proclaim, protect, and provide LIFE for unborn babies in each city across America where abortion exists.
“CITIES4LIFE is not merely a series of events. It is not simply a ministry. It is a culture.”
CITIES4LFE Tampa Bay seeks to transform the culture of death brought about by abortion to a culture of LIFE in our cities as we work to mobilize the Body of Christ to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. This is accomplished by uniting and supporting grassroots, Gospel-centered ministries, families, and individuals dedicated to proclaiming the love of Jesus Christ and providing tangible support to abortion-minded mothers at abortion clinics and throughout the city with our LIFE Network affiliates.
“I have not forgotten about what you’ve done for us. I cried, prayed, and thanked the Lord for all these beautiful things and for the people who unconditionally gave them.”
– Lupita, a mother who chose life in Charlotte, NC
Because abortion is primarily a Gospel issue, this holocaust will only come to an end when gentle Christians begin to actively live out their faith at local abortion clinics and at LIFE Network affiliate ministries in their own cities. We view the neighborhoods and abortion clinics we serve as our mission field and our approach is peaceful, prayerful and non-violent. CITIES4LIFE requires each volunteer and LIFE Network affiliates to sign and adhere to our Code of Conduct.
CITIES4LIFE seeks to affiliate with local churches and Gospel-centered ministries to mobilize their faith into actionable steps to meet the physical and spiritual needs of abortion-minded mothers at abortion clinics and throughout each city we serve.
When Jesus visits a city, restoration from death to LIFE is the result. He said, “I came that you may have LIFE and have it more abundantly.” The incredible element of this truth is that Jesus uses each of us to bring LIFE to our city! In John 7:38 says, “He who believes in me, out of his belly will flow rivers of LIVING water.” This river of LIFE that flows from within each of us is the only hope for our cities and nation.
We must live and share the LIFE Christ has given us. God has saved us “for such a time as this” in our nation’s history! We are not motivated to simply end abortion; we are seeking to transform our cities with the LIFE of Jesus.
Engage with us in your city by:
- PROCLAIMING the truth in loving, peaceful, prayerful and non-violent way.
- PRAYING for the end of abortion and for the men, women and children impacted by it.
- PROVIDING for the medical and tangible needs of the these families.
- PROTECTING life by encouraging the body of Christ’s involvement on the sidewalk and in the LIFE network of ministries in each city we serve; then throughout the nation by replicating this ministry model in other cities, supporting them with strategic tools, resources, technology, counseling materials and much more.
If a CITIES4LIFE chapter is not in your city please consider contacting us for information and resources on starting up a CITIES4LIFE ministry in your city.
“Whoever Finds Me Finds LIFE” – Proverbs 8:35
Because Jesus Christ brings life where there is death, we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ first and foremost above all things. At His name the culture of death is destroyed, and His life penetrates to the deepest part of the soul. There is no strategy that can replace a transformed soul at the proclamation of His great name. If an abortion-minded mother’s soul is touched by the Life of Jesus, her heart and mind will run toward Life for her unborn baby. We also expose the evil deeds of the abortion industry just as John 3:19-20 says, “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”
Most abortion-minded mothers feel that they have no choice but to abort their babies. By actively providing tangible, real Life choices to these mothers, CITIES4LIFE™ produces a culture of Life one mother at a time. From free sonograms to baby showers; counseling to prenatal care, our LIFE Network affiliates provide mother’s with LIFE giving solutions that meet them right where they are. Philippians 2:4 says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Abortion is first and foremost a spiritual battle and reveals the very nature of evil, which is to rob, kill, and destroy. Therefore, we must be a people of prayer! Christ Himself showed us the importance of prayer in Mark 9:29 when He said of an evil spirit, “This cannot come out by anything but prayer.”
We proclaim, provide and pray in order to protect the lives of unborn babies in each city across America where abortion exists. Since 1973 over 55 million babies have been murdered while God’s Church, for the most part, has remained silent. It is our prayer that the church in America will be mobilized to take a stand for Life. God had created each of us with skills, talents and spiritual gifts uniquely designed to serve in His Kingdom. CITIES4LIFE is about putting our faith into action to save unborn children from death.
