MetadataShow full item record
This project was designed to provide Southern Baptist churches in Detroit, Michigan with a model of an actively prolife church. The model was based on Oasis of Hope Christian Church, a National Baptist church, which is also located in Detroit and subject to the same challenges as the Southern Baptist churches. The purpose of the model is to aid the Southern Baptist churches in responding to the epidemic of abortion in the city, and help the churches to move toward being actively prolife. Chapter 1 includes an introduction of the project, along with the context in which the project was executed. The rationale, definitions, delimitations, purpose, goals, and research methodology are also included in chapter 1. Chapter 2 includes the biblical and theological basis for the value and importance of human life from conception. Chapter 3 includes the response of the local church to unplanned and unwanted pregnancies and/or abortion in the church. Chapter 4 includes a description of the methodology used to execute the project, and chapter 5 includes an evaluation of the completed project, including strengths, weaknesses, and other considerations.
