Abortion and the Gospel


As our society grapples with the overturning of Roe v Wade by the United States Supreme Court, on Sunday, August 7th we hosted an Emmaus Institute Forum called Abortion and the Gospel – a night of education and equipping on the important issue of abortion. When does life truly begin? Is abortion sinful? What is the role of God’s people in a post-Roe world? The Bible has answers to all of these questions – during this event, we sought to answer them!

Below, you will find the video recording of this important event as well as some recommended resources and next steps for you as we seek to be faithful Christians in this area.
