About Us
Who We Are
The South Texas Pregnancy Care Center (STPCC) has been serving the community of Seguin and surrounding counties since 2001.  We are an affiliate of Heartbeat International, a life-affirming evangelistic ministry dedicated to educating and encouraging people to choose life, to make positive sexual choices, and to bring healing to those affected by abortion.

We are a non-denominational, faith-based, 501(c)(3) organization.  We are supported by generous donations from individuals, churches, businesses, grants and fundraising events.  We do not receive any government funding.
Statement of Faith
We believe in the Holy Trinity - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God.  We believe Jesus is God’s Son, was born of a virgin, lived among us, died on the cross to pay the price for our sins and rose again on the third day.  We believe Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
