It is evident to serious minded Christians of all denominations that our nation and our society are in the greatest crisis of modern times. Out of control judges have begun to use their authority to drastically alter the time honored institutions of marriage, family and education to advance an ungodly agenda that threatens the spiritual, physical, social and psychological well-being of individuals and families.
Such extreme practices as partial-birth abortion, unrestricted abortion on demand, court-ordered starvation and dehydration, homosexual "marriage" and many more atrocities are signs of an elitist judiciary bent on foisting an agenda on the nation that is totally contrary to its sacred moral traditions.
Evangelical and Catholic Christians (along with traditional Protestants and Eastern Orthodox) share core religious convictions when it comes to the sanctity of human life, of the marriage bond and of the family. According to a recent Gallup Poll, a strong majority (what in politics would be called a "super-majority") of Protestant ministers of every denomination support a ban on all abortions. The Catholic and Orthodox Churches forbid abortion in all forms and at every stage of the child's development. Evangelical Christians largely support a ban on the taking of all innocent life, from the unborn to the sick and dying.
Yet, Christians today are frustrated at the inability of elected and appointed officials to translate this broad public opposition to abortion and euthanasia and the support of the sanctity of life into policies that preserve and protect life.
Gospel of Life Ministries is a new, joint effort of Faith and Action, the National Clergy Council and Priests for Life. They have teamed up with Rev. Frank Pavone, a nationally known pro-life leader, to form an organization with concrete strategies to help Evangelical and Catholic Christians work together to defeat the Culture of Death and replace it with a new Culture of Life.
The long-term objective is to build a Culture of Life, which reflects the Biblical morals that all true Christians hold in common. The short-term objective is to equip, train and resource Christians of all denominations to use the stewardship of the vote to assure that elected and appointed officials support and defend life.
Rev. Frank Pavone - (National Director) has led the Priests for Life movement throughout the world since 1993. Millions who watch his program on EWTN Television and have heard his ubiquitous radio spots advocating for life know him as an indefatigable defender of life. He was ordained by John Cardinal O'Connor and is the first Moderator General of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. He served Pope John Paul II in the Vatican as an official of the Pontifical Council for the Family. He is the author of numerous booklets, pamphlets and editorial columns. He is widely regarded as one of the most dynamic preachers in the Catholic Church.
Gospel of Life Ministries is not re-inventing the wheel. The organization uses all of the manifold resources available from some of the most effective pro-life organizations and movements in the country. Literature, speakers, audio, video, broadcast TV and Radio are all available from G.O.L. In addition, a Speakers Bureau provides challenging, dynamic and experienced pro-life speakers for churches, conferences, conventions, banquets, educational and media events.
Gospel of Life is committed to assisting serious Christians, regardless of denomination, doctrine or communion, in overcoming the barriers that have kept the Body of Christ weak and ineffective. Rev. Frank Pavone has been endorsed by leaders throughout the Christian world including Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. James Dobson, Cardinal John O'Connor, Pat Robertson, Mother Angelica, Rev. Jerry Falwell, Charles Colson, Alveda King (Dr. Martin Luther King's niece), Miss Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe) and many, many more.

Gospel of Life Ministries is an interdenominational effort supported by Faith and Action, The National Clergy Council, Priests for Life, and the National Pro-Life Religious Council.
The purpose of Gospel of Life Ministries is to bring Evangelical and Catholic Christians together to defend life from abortion and euthanasia, and to build a Culture of Life in the United States and worldwide.
The accomplishment of this goal requires the commitment of the People of God and of those who nourish them with the preaching of God's word and various forms of ministry. Gospel of Life Ministries therefore puts a special emphasis on equipping and encouraging the churches to engage this effort.
The People of God are also called to take seriously their responsibilities of self-governance, participation in the political process, and prophetic challenge to elected and appointed officials regarding their obligations to protect life. Gospel of Life Ministries is therefore committed to advancing civic responsibility as understood from a Biblical perspective.
