The family was established by divine creation with marriage as its nucleus. Since it is the basic environment in which values are transmitted and the capacity for an intimate relationship with God and with other human beings is developed, your health is vital to the mission of the church to make disciples. The Family Life Ministry department recognizes the Bible’s teachings regarding the family as normative, and emphasizes God’s ideals for family life. At the same time, it helps to understand the pain suffered by individuals and families in a fallen world. The department promotes understanding, unity, and love in the home as well as in the family of God.
The Scriptures reaffirm the importance of the family and outline the divine principles that govern family relationships. At creation, God instituted marriage, and with it the family (Genesis 2:18-25), as the main framework for human development and formation. When Christ redeemed all human experience from the curse of sin, he also redeemed marriage and family relationships. Ask family members to behave as befits people who have responded to the gospel (Ephesians 5:21-6:4). Being that the family is the main scenario where the capacity to love, intimate communion with God and with other human beings is developed; And where Christian values are passed from one generation to the next, the family occupies a central place in the process of Christian discipleship (John 8:31, 13:35).
The Family Ministries Department seeks to strengthen, inspire hope, and heal marriages, families, and individuals through the abundant love and saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Prepare families for the Kingdom of God, and thus hasten the coming of Jesus Christ.
