CELEBRATING 2000 YEARS OF JESUSIN WORD, WORSHIP, AND WITNESS:
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.[Mark 8:34,35]
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.[Matt. 28:18-20]

CREED OF THE CHRISTIAN HOME
I BELIEVE in the Christian home, established by God, honored by our Lord Jesus Christ, blessed by the Holy Spirit, and entrusted to human parents.

I BELIEVE in family worship, family Bible reading, family prayer, and in family participation in church, Sunday school, and other discipling experiences.
I BELIEVE in family love by parental demonstration of God's love in human relationships, in which love for one another is fostered and encouraged.
I BELIEVE in family loyalty, in which family relationships are held to be the highest of all human responsibilities with each member supporting the other.
I BELIEVE in family honesty, in which parents communicate to their children with integrity and where children learn to be open and honest with their parents.
I BELIEVE in family goals which encourage each member to do their very best, resulting in a Christ-honoring home that is a witness to the community.
I BELIEVE in family fun, in interplay of recreation where time is taken to do things together resulting in refreshment, satisfaction, and fulfillment for all.
I BELIEVE in the Christian home as the cradle of character, the strength of the community, the sanctity of the nation, the hope of the world, and the keystone of all society.
GOD GRANT us Christian homes like these.
