Statement of Faith

We believe that ultimately, our healing, as well as restoration of our hope and joy, comes from God. That God is the one and only God who exists in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit.

The Bible serves as our foundational source of grief support that SIDS America extends to grieving SIDS families. We believe that the Bible, consisting of Old and New Testaments, is the only infallible, inspired, authoritative Word of God.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death through His own shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, His bodily second coming, the resurrection of the saints, the final judgement, and the final state of the new heavens and new earth.

We believe that all healing of the body, soul, and spirit are provided for in Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. Jesus’s crucifixion paid the penalty for our sins, and the benefits of his redeeming work on the cross are available to anyone who chooses to receive Jesus as his/her personal Savior. This salvation is a free gift of God, received by faith as an act of free will.

We believe that suffering is inevitable in this world, but we do not grieve as those who have no hope. The hope we have through Christ’s death on the cross gives us the confidence and comfort of knowing we will be with our babies again when we reunite in Heaven. We believe God’s promises are true and unchanging.

We believe that, regardless of their parents’ beliefs, all children who die before understanding what it means to receive Jesus as their personal Savior live forever in the presence of the Lord. This is based on the following consistencies affirmed throughout Scripture-

  • That life begins at conception, and every person has an eternal soul.
  • That every life is God’s creation, and God claims ownership of every innocent child.
  • That God has a plan and purpose for every life.
  • That God always extends compassion on the innocent.
  • That Jesus blessed the little children, welcomed them to Himself, and spoke of them, “Of such is the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:14)
