Who Are We?
Rescue the Innocent is an alliance of Silicon Valley churches standing side-by-side in defense of our pre-born neighbors. In one of the most "unchurched" and "dechurched cities" in the United States*, we are committed to seeing the darkness of abortion transformed by the light of the gospel. With the glory of God as our end and aim (1 Cor. 10:31), we are compelled by the love of Christ (2 Cor. 5:14) to "rescue those who are being taken away to death; [and to] hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter" (Prov. 24:11).
Our vision is to see abortion abolished in Silicon Valley. We want to see a Christian presence at every sidewalk of every abortion mill in the Bay Area. We want to see pro-abortion events overwhelmed by local churches, to see politicians feel the pressure of their Christian constituents, and to see believers earnestly praying together for the end of abortion.
Our mission is to abolish abortion by enabling local churches to coordinate, cooperate, and participate effectively in four key areas: sidewalk ministry, public engagement, political action, and prayer. Through the website, the alliance also provides a single, centralized resource to equip churches with everything needed to begin doing abortion outreach in Silicon Valley.
The Value of an Alliance
Coverage can be extended at local abortion mills through the coordination of sidewalk activities between partner churches, bringing a desperately-needed gospel presence to more places of death, more days of the week.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
With more Christians engaging the public on abortion, petitioning our civil authorities, and pleading together before God, our life-saving endeavors have the potential for greater impact.
Cooperation enables us to benefit from the knowledge, skills, resources, and experiences of each other. We can share valuable insights and strengthen our efforts to rescue innocent babies from abortion.
