OUR VALUES

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves received from God.  – 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4

 

We pray for… All marriages to be God-centered and thriving.

We do this by… Inspiring and encouraging couples to value, nurture and transform their marriages through two-on-two marriage guidance and intentional gatherings.

 

We strive to provide…

  • Gospel-centered community
  • God-glorifying excellence
  • Authentic relationship
  • Joyous adventure
  • Intentional guidance

 

We believe…

  • In one God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In Jesus, Son of God, fully God and fully man, sent by God to die for our sins, rise again from the dead and redeem those who believe with that victory over sin and death.
  • In the Holy Spirit, who dwells in the hearts of believers, sanctifying us and providing all we need to live a gospel-sharing, obedient, abundant life.
  • In the Bible as God’s true and living word, without error and filled with His wisdom.
  • In biblical marriage, as God-made in order to bring glory to Him, as defined in the Bible as the lifelong, exclusive union between a man and a woman.
  • In the principles of the greatest commandments, as stated by Jesus in Matthew 22, that we are to love God above all, and love everyone. Everyone.
