Couples Loving Under Trust-Commitment-Holiness

Mission/Vision:

Our purpose is to honor, glorify, worship, and praise God with our life and the way we live our life in our relationships; relationships that honor & glorify God according to His Holy Word. We strive to ‘obey’ God’s Word, God’s ways, and God’s will in fellowship with others Believers and Followers of Jesus Christ who have the same desire, purpose and objective.  “Couples” are defined by our “Statement of Faith” according to God’s Holy Word the Bible.  These are outlined on our website under “What We Believe” as well as in our “Orientation Manual” as follows:

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 NLT

1If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proudor rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless. 11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

About Marriage* – We believe that marriage is the uniting of one MAN and one WOMAN in covenant committed for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the women in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.
