Our Mission Statement

The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center is a life-affirming ministry that strives to empower women to make informed decisions about their reproductive options and is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Story

The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center, which officially opened in January 1999, is the result of a combined effort by Lynchburg area Christians who were concerned about women in crisis pregnancy situations. We are not affiliated with any denomination, congregation or political organization. We are affiliated with Heartbeat International, an organization for crisis pregnancy centers, CareNet, and NIFLA (National Institute of Family and Life Advocates). We are financed completely by private donations and all gifts are tax-deductible as allowable by law. Our annual budget is approximately $300,000.

Life Verse Titus 3:4-7 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,  whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,  so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
