Adoption & Foster Care

Our Mission

The mission of Open Arms Adoption & Foster Care Ministry is to care for orphans both in our communities and throughout the world. To bring awareness of their needs, bring healing to these children, promote adoption and fostering, and provide support for adoptive and foster families.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." -James 1:27 (NIV)

"God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ...and it gave Him great pleasure... He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son." -Ephesians 1:5,7
