Marriage is being redefined; children are increasingly raised in fatherless homes; moms and dads are busy with careers, with little time to parent. Families, as God designed them, are rare.
The family is a fundamental institution, constituted by marriage between one man and one woman, as a covenant before God. God ordained that children would be brought into the world through this blessed union. Parents would have the privilege and responsibility to bring children up in the knowledge of the Lord, so they might receive Christ as their personal Savior.
In a healthy, safe, and godly environment children flourish, and are more likely to become contributing members of society. As this cycle is repeated,
communities become stronger, and God’s good work is accomplished through His children.
