The Life Initiative is Watermark’s ministry equipping women, men, and families on issues related to unexpected pregnancy and abortion. We envision a world where:
- every human life is dignified with value from the moment of conception
- every woman is empowered with respect for her body and the gift of motherhood
- every man is ennobled to honor, provide for, and protect his children and their mother
- every person with a past abortion steps into the light of forgiveness and freedom found in Christ
The Watermark Life Initiative helps parents, students, and young adults to think rightly about human flourishing from who we are as bearers of the Imago Dei to how the gift of sex best fits in the gift of marriage.
"So Got created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27
"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed." Genesis 1:24-25
We come alongside expecting mothers and fathers, empowering them to parent with the support and follow through of a nurturing community. We speak truth, hope, and healing to women and men dealing with the trauma of past abortions. And we advocate for communities and policies that promote the dignity of every human life.
