WHAT WE BELIEVE
Families are the foundation for our future. One of the things Jesus Christ taught pertains to the very foundation of any society - the family, which begins when a man leaves his father and mother to be joined to his wife and the two become one flesh. Jesus asserted God's authority over marriage; it is God's institution.
We believe that the importance of marriage often is undervalued in contemporary society. Many children of unwed couples do flourish, but research shows that on average they are at greater risk of living in poverty and developing social, behavioral, and academic problems than children growing up with their married parents.
We believe it is important to prepare young men and women to be husbands and wives, particularly during this era where marriage, fidelity and lasting unions are out of vogue.
