The PRC is a nonprofit, life-affirming ministry serving our local Greater Grand Rapids community. We educate people on the options available to them within an unplanned pregnancy. Through empathic service, centered on the belief that all people matter to God and should be treated with dignity, we enable people to choose life for their unborn children and healthy lifestyles for themselves through our Willing to Wait™ sexual risk avoidance education in schools and the Whole Truth™ in the church, our medical services (pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and STD testing and treatment), and our family support services. Our vision is to be the most trusted and respected source for information, education, and services that affirm the gift of human life.
Living the truth that people matter to God.
God creates human life in His image. Human life is distinctly precious and unique; so much so that we are told by God to protect and preserve life. God has given us His word in which He sets human life apart as valuable. We believe we are called to provide justice to all, especially the most vulnerable and voiceless among us.
We hold that life begins at conception as God works to shape each child into the person He wants him or her to be. We believe current scientific discovery supports this view. For instance, we know that DNA, often referred to as the building block of life, is present at the very time of conception.
