Statement of Principle

  1. CREE is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His church. Therefore, CREE, embodied in its staff and volunteers, is committed to presenting the gospel of our Lord to women with crisis pregnancies – both in word and in deed. Commensurate with this purpose, those who labor as CREE board members, staff, and volunteers are expected to trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
  2. CREE is committed to providing its clients with accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion.
  3. CREE is committed to integrity in dealing with clients, earning their trust, and providing promised information and services. CREE denounces any form of deception in its corporate advertising or individual conversations with its clients.
  4. CREE is committed to assisting women to carry to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. Through the provision of God’s people and the community at large, women may face the future with hope, and plan constructively for themselves and their babies.
  5. CREE does not discriminate in providing services because of the race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age or marital status of its clients.
  6. CREE does not recommend, provide or refer for abortion or abortaficients.
  7. CREE offers assistance free of charge at all times through Cree Womans Center
  8. CREE is committed to creating an awareness within the local community of the needs of pregnant women, and how abortion only compounds human need rather than resolving it.
  9. CREE does not recommend, provide, or refer single women for contraceptives. (Married women seeking contraceptive information are urged to seek counsel, along with their husbands, from their pastor and physician.)
  10. CREE recognizes the validity of adoption as one alternative to abortion. We are independent of adoption agencies, relating to them in the same manner as to other helpful referral sources. CREE does not receive payment of any kind from these agencies, does not enter into contractual relationships with them, and does not share combined office space. Adoption agencies may not be established under our auspices. CREE neither initiates nor facilitates independent adoptions, although we may refer an independent adoption agency.
  11. CREE is committed to being a positive factor in our community by reducing the number of unplanned pregnancies. We promote sexual abstinence between unmarried couples of any age as the appropriate behavior. We endeavor to educate young people that their best option is to wait for sexual activity until they are married.
  12. CREE refers to various social services and agencies that encourage and provide emotional, medical, physical, legal, spiritual, or financial support.
