To impact families and communities with new life and hope by inspiring women to develop an intimate relationship with Jesus.
An Open Door to Life exists to heal women by helping them achieve optimal mental health through sound Christian counseling. We provide a safe, caring, and compassionate environment for women who have endured pain, loss, abuse, neglect, and trauma but desire to experience healing and abundant life through Jesus Christ. We care for women’s physical needs through our network of like-minded community resource partners and aim to help every woman understand her worth and value as she walks in the fullness of God’s perfect plan.

The Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. There is one God, eternally existent in perfect unity as three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His Virgin Birth; in His sinless human life; in His divine miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
We believe in and expectantly await the glorious, visible, personal, return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed hope of His return has vital bearing on the personal life, service, and mission of the believer (1 Thessalonians 4:13–18).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost. The lost will be raised to judgment and experience eternal wrath in Hell. The saved will be raised to eternal joy in the new Heaven and new earth in the manifested presence of God (Acts 1:3, 9; Hebrews 7:25–26).
