According to UNICEF there are over 100 million orphans in the world today and 500,000 orphans (135,000 who are adoptable) in the United States. Would Jesus have 2.1 billion professing Christians and 16 million Southern Baptists ignore their cries?

Ashland Avenue Baptist Church is committed to do all we can to adopt as many orphans from around the world as possible. Every member of the Ashland family is challenged to be apart of rescuing children from around the world by giving, praying, and adopting. Our commitment to adoption flows from our commitment to the gospel. All who know the grace of God found only in Jesus Christ, have been adopted by God. It only makes sense that those of us who have been adopted in this way display such grace in the world through a radical commitment to adoption.
