Every year we will post a Pro-Life Sermon from Sanctity of Life Sunday. 2011’s Sermon is HERE

Check out the video at the bottom of this page by R.C. Sproul

These are Synod actions from our denomination’s webpage:
We believe that the Scriptures clearly and plainly testifies to the infinite worth of human life by virtue of man having been created in the image and likeness of God, and that decisions about life and death are God’s prerogatives and not man’s, and that even in the case of rare exceptions such as judgments by medical personnel about highly technical medical problems, human judgement should always stand in submission to the divine judgement and wisdom of God.

We also believe the Scriptures point up a unique relationship between God the Creator and the unborn child. And, therefore, regarding the divine mysteries of the conception and development of human life, we dare make no other inference than the conclusion that it is not for men basically to be the determiners of life and death, even for the unborn child.

Therefore, in all instances, one should seek to preserve the life of the unborn child.
(Minutes of the General Synod, 1981, p. 402 & 403)

WHEREAS, the dark and tragic night of abortion continues to overshadow our land, and
WHEREAS, the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church has previously declared its opposition to the hideous practice of elective abortion, and,
WHEREAS, some 22 million preborn children have been “legally” executed in the United States of America since January 22, 1973, and
WHEREAS, God’s law is immutable and we His servants are called upon to be “salt and light”, and
WHEREAS, euthanasia and other practices which diminish the sanctity of human life are now gaining prominence in our nation,

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Northeast Presbytery of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, memorialize the General Synod of said church to designate the Sabbath nearest to January 22 of each year to be recognized as the “Sanctity of Human Life Sunday” in all churches of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, and that every minister of said church be asked to mark the day with appropriate Biblical messages in which the members of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church are exhorted to seek out and practice non-violent measures attempting to oppose abortion and to promote the sanctity of human life.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Principal Clerk of this Church notify the Congress of the United States of America as to the action of this, the highest court of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church.

(Minutes of the General Synod, 1988, p. 567)


Be it resolved that the General Synod of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, in its 192nd meeting, held at Flat Rock, N.C., June 10-13, 1996, reaffirm its strong position against abortion which was adopted in 1981, and, in light of the horrendous practice of partial-birth abortion being carried out in our society and being recently endorsed by the President of the United States, go on record to protest this evil which is nothing short of the murder of children and an offense to Almighty God in whose image all humanity is made.

Be it further resolved that this protest be sent to the President of the United States with the humble but fervent request that he reconsider his position on this issue and that he do all that is in his power to save and protect these defenseless children.

And be it further resolved that the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church be in prayer for the President of the United States, to the end that the One who holds the heart of the king in His sovereign hand might turn that heart to the path of justice and truth.”
(Minutes of the General Synod, 1996, p. 325)

Below is a video from R.C. Sproul with whom we totally agree.

[vimeo 18468741 w=700 h=408]R.C. Sproul Discusses the Issue of Abortion from Ligonier on Vimeo.

R.C. Sproul & R.C. Sproul, Jr. discuss the topic of abortion—its place in the culture, in the church, and where it has come since the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. They discuss Christian ethics, what they believe the church should do about abortion, and how they feel the church can make an impact to protect unborn children. Dr. Sproul’s book, Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue is being re-released 20 years after the original edition.
