STATEMENT ON MARRIAGE, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY

WE BELIEVE THAT GOD WONDERFULLY AND IMMUTABLY CREATED EACH PERSON AS MALE OR FEMALE.  THESE TWO DISTINCT, COMPLEMENTARY GENDERS TOGETHER REFLECT THE IMAGE AND NATURE OF GOD. (GEN. 1:26-27) REJECTION OF ONE’S BIOLOGICAL SEX IS A REJECTION OF THE IMAGE OF GOD WITHIN THAT PERSON.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE TERM “MARRIAGE” HAS ONLY ONE MEANING: THE UNITING OF ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN IN A SINGLE, EXCLUSIVE UNION, AS DELINEATED IN SCRIPTURE (GEN. 2:18-25).  WE BELIEVE THAT GOD INTENDS SEXUAL INTIMACY TO OCCUR ONLY BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN WHO ARE MARRIED TO EACH OTHER. (1 COR. 6:18; 7:2-5; HEB. 13:4).  WE BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS COMMANDED THAT NO INTIMATE SEXUAL ACTIVITY BE ENGAGED IN OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.

BECAUSE GOD HAS ORDAINED MARRIAGE AND DEFINED IT AS A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN AND HIMSELF, ABBA ADOPTION WILL ONLY RECOGNIZE MARRIAGES BETWEEN BIOLOGICAL MAN AND BIOLOGICAL WOMAN.  

WE BELIEVE THAT ANY FORM OF SEXUAL IMMORALITY (INCLUDING ADULTERY, FORNICATION, HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR, BISEXUAL CONDUCT, BESTIALITY, INCEST AND USE OF PORNOGRAPHY) IS SINFUL AND OFFENSIVE TO GOD. (MATT. 15:18-20; 1 COR. 6:9-10)

WE BELIEVE THAT IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE FUNCTION AND INTEGRITY OF ABBA ADOPTION, AND TO PROVIDE A BIBLICAL ROLE MODEL TO ABBA ADOPTION’S STAFF, CLIENTS AND THE COMMUNITY, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ALL PERSONS EMPLOYED BY, CONTRACTED BY, SERVING AS VOLUNTEERS, FOSTER FAMILIES, CLIENTS AND/OR SEEKING ADOPTION OR FOSTER SERVICES OR REPRESENTING ABBA ADOPTION IN ANY CAPACITY, AGREE TO ABIDE BY THIS STATEMENT ON MARRIAGE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY. (MATT. 5:16; PHIL. 2:14-16; 1 THESS. 5:22)

WE BELIEVE THAT GOD OFFERS REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION TO ALL WHO CONFESS AND FORSAKE THEIR SIN, SEEKING HIS MERCY AND FORGIVENESS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. (ACTS 3:19-21; ROM. 10:9-10; 1 COR. 6:9-11)

WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY PERSON MUST BE AFFORDED COMPASSION, LOVE, KINDNESS, RESPECT, AND DIGNITY. (MARK 12:28-31; LUKE 6:31)  HATEFUL AND HARASSING BEHAVIOR OR ATTITUDES DIRECTED TOWARD ANY INDIVIDUAL ARE TO BE REPUDIATED AND ARE NOT IN ACCORD WITH SCRIPTURE NOR THE DOCTRINES OF ABBA ADOPTION



ABBA ADOPTION AGENCY - A Domestic Adoption Agency






In 1998, I (Kandi Cox) along with some wonderful Godly saints came together and with much prayer started a Post Abortion Support Group.  We never imagined at that time where God would lead us.  Miracle after miracle we saw lives being transformed and forever changed by the grace of God.  Women coming forward and seeking healing and forgiveness from scars so deep that the despair they felt was overwhelming and consuming their lives.  It wasn’t long before God impressed upon us that we were to take the next steps and form a Care Pregnancy Center.  I had known for years that I was chosen to be a voice for life.  As we began that journey, God stirred heavily within my heart that adoption was to be an option and my job was to focus on making sure these ladies, who found themselves in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy had a loving alternative for their children.  Having been adopted, along with Chris and I faced with an unplanned pregnancy at an early age, my heart was very tender in this area.  Over time God in His sovereignty moved our family to the Central Arkansas area.  I continued my work in the ministry back home as often as I could; giving my testimony whenever the door was opened, knowing that God had a bigger plan and I was to just be patient and wait.

As God laid the foundation to what was the beginning stages of ABBA Adoption agency in arkansas, it was time to call out to the prayer warriors.  Our faith was to grow in knowing that although we knew not how God was going to bring about ABBA Adoption agency, the evidence was beginning to be clear that He had a plan that went further than we could ever imagine.  Confirmation after confirmation, God proved to us that when we trust Him and are obedient to His calling in our life, He would be the one to equip us because He is the one who called us!  Amen!  This was first proven when He gave me the strength to go into the local abortion clinic and speak with them about adoption and that being an option for maybe one woman faced with an unplanned pregnancy that may have a change of heart while at their facility.  Just a couple weeks later our very first call was with a mom that had gone to have an abortion and with God’s intervening, that young lady contacted abba adoption agency and chose life and adoption for her baby.  There is no other way to explain the miracle we saw other than His holy hand cupped with a humble heart that is broken and yielding together for the wonders of life.  

abba adoption agency in arkansas' vision is to share the love of Christ to those that are hurting and lead them to the Cross by the testimony that has been given to us.  Adoption is a small scratch in the surface of work that we have been called to do.  Crisis are never single servings, they are always engulfed by other scars and hurts in life that we must not shadow and ignore, but encompass a program that meets the need in an all-inclusive approach; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  We desire to shepherd these women to be what God desires them to be.  In addition, we must equip the families that God is trusting to train up these precious little miracles in Christ centered homes.  We are merely the vessels to bring the trust of the sanctity of life.

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”  ~ Romans 8:15

STATEMENT ON THE SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image.  Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death.  We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps. 139)

STATEMENT OF FAITH

     We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God
     We believe there is on God eternally existent, revealed to us in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
     We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life; that He performed miracles; that by His death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin; that he ascended into heaven to the right hand of God; and that he will return in power and glory to judge the world and complete His redemptive purpose.
     We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, He inspired men to write the Scriptures, enables men to understand truth, exalts Christ, convicts of sin, calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration.  We believe He empowers believers to live godly lives, comforts believers, and bestows spiritual gifts on believers by which they serve Him.
     We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration (the conviction of sin, repentance toward God, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ) by the Holy Spirit is essential.
     We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost.  We believe the saved are resurrected unto life everlasting and the lost are resurrected unto eternal condemnation.
     We believe in the spiritual unity of redeemed believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and in the scriptural importance of church membership and active involvement.
     We believe every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of God supreme in his own life and in human society.  We believe it is our responsibility and privilege to minister to those who are orphaned, in need, and helpless, being careful to act with redemptive love without compromising our loyalty to Christ and His truth.
