Who Are We?
Rescue the Innocent is a cross-denominational team of Silicon Valley Christians working to save babies at abortion facilities. We go to the sidewalks together to provide life-saving love, help, hope, and truth.
Our mission is to rescue the innocent by meeting the needs of abortion-facility patients, changing hearts and minds, and petitioning God together in prayer.
Our vision is to see many babies saved from abortion in Silicon Valley. We want to see an effective rescue team covering every sidewalk of every abortion facility in the Bay Area, and we want to see Christians faithfully praying together for the protection of the pre-born.
Why a team?
We can increase our coverage of abortion facilities by working together with other believers.
STRENGTH IN PRAYER
With more Christians striving together in prayer, our life-saving endeavors have the potential for greater impact.
We can improve our rescue efforts through the shared knowledge, skills, resources, and experiences of others.
Our Heart and History
Rescue the Innocent is a sidewalk ministry program of Christ Community Church of San Jose (CCC). Members of CCC began doing sidewalk outreach at the Planned Parenthood San Jose Central Health Center in March 2021. As a team, we are motivated by our love for God and our love for others, including the abortion facility employees, patients, and pre-born children (Matt. 22:37–39). We also believe the path of wisdom is a path of justice. Proverbs 24:11-12 says, “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, "Behold, we did not know this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?” We are grieved that our pre-born neighbors are the most oppressed and vulnerable people in our city. We see sidewalk rescue ministry as one outworking of the church’s call to help the helpless and defend the defenseless (Isa. 1:17, Jam. 1:27).
