The Family

God’s Foundation for the church

From the very beginning of time, there has existed an institution designed and created by God that makes up the very fabric of every community, society, nation and government that the world has ever known. This institution is the family. When God brought Adam and Eve together He started the world’s most solid and basic institution. Throughout the Bible we see the importance God places on families and how they play into His grand scheme for mankind. (Genesis 18:19, Psalm 78, Ephesians 5-6)

The Church of Christ on West Main values each family highly! It appears that our world is doing its worst to dismantle and debunk the traditional family and its importance in the fabric of our culture. We believe that strong, healthy families are absolutely essential to maintaining a strong, healthy church not to mention community and even nation. We believe it is our God given responsibility to help families grow in their strength together as a unit as well as their closeness to God. It is also our conviction that the family is God’s primary tool for making disciples and passing on faith to the generations to come. As a result we strive to tailor our attitude, style, lessons, activities and atmosphere to make the Church of Christ on West Main as family friendly as possible. It is our firm belief that the family must be built on the same foundation as the church and that can be none other than Jesus Christ Himself (1 Corinthians 3:10-15) We strive to help each individual and family grow in their knowledge of the Word of God and in their relationship with their Lord and Savior.
We seek to build up families and encourage each family member to the best of our ability and as such we offer a variety extra opportunities for the family to be encouraged and strengthened.
