There are three major objectives in our Mission and Purpose:

  • To promote through education the prevention of suffering and cruelty to any of God's creatures, human or otherwise, including, but not limited to their diet, their health, and their living conditions. To promote through education the elimination of the use of animals in biomedical research and testing, their use as food, or their use for any and all commercial purposes; and to protect the environment in which we all live, so that no living beings suffer from its destruction or pollution.
  • To support organizations which have similar goals of preventing any harm to any of God's creatures, human or otherwise, or to the environment.
  • To provide an Internet Archival Library ( www.all-creatures.org ) of educational materials to assist both teachers and students in the furtherance of cruelty-free living.

We are a Biblically based organization, and believe that our call to mission is to restore God's original creation intent of a plant based diet (Genesis 1:29-30).

We believe that a vital part of God's plan is to have His people be stewards of His earthly creation, and perhaps beyond, and to "rule" over it in such a way as to protect it from harm. Additionally, we are to "subdue", through peaceful means, all evil that seeks to cause harm to any portion of creation (Genesis 1:26-28).

We believe we have been called as sons and daughters (children) of God to counteract the cruelty and damage that has been and continues to be inflicted upon the earth and all its inhabitants, for the whole of creation has been waiting and groaning for such individuals even until this very day (Romans 8:18-25).

We believe that in the heavenly life to come there will be true peace, and that everything will once again be restored to God's original intent, where there will no longer be any sickness, or mourning, or crying, or pain, or death (Revelation 21:4).

We believe that in Jesus' instructional prayer (The Lord's Prayer) He gave us the confirmation of our mission and purpose, for we are to pray, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:10). Thus, we believe that we are to work toward the goal of having God's creation and heavenly peace on earth.

We believe that all people and animals were created with God-given rights to be free from harm and abuse, and to live their individual lives as God originally intended. God's gift of this physical world is also a right of enjoyment for all His creatures, and thus, it requires our care and protection for all future generations.
