WHAT WE BELIEVE

That Jesus Christ is the One and only Son of the living God. We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and died on the cross to pay the price for our sins. He arose on the third day, ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father and will return for His people someday. We acknowledge and believe that the Bible is the complete and infallible Word of God.

That marriage is a sacred union that represents the marriage of the bride (the church) and the groom (Christ) (Eph. 5:32.)

That it is the desire of God's heart to reconcile all marriages, "that none should perish" (2Cor. 5:18). That what God has joined together, let no man separate. (Mark 10:6-9)

That God is able to restore a marriage through the obedience of only one spouse, standing in the gap, lifting up holy hands (Ezek. 22:30).

That adultery is grounds for forgiveness rather than divorce (John 8:11).

That the main concern of the person who desires to have their marriage restored must be that of reconciling themselves to God and delighting themselves in the Lord not in pursuing their spouse who has left (Rev. 2:4 and Ps. 37:4).

That this ministry was not formed to condemn those who have chosen to reject reconciliation with their husband or wife, nor to condemn those who remarry or are remarried (John 3:17).

That it is our call to encourage, teach, cry with, lift up, and minister to those women or men who have been called to restore their marriage (Isa. 61:1-4).

That through a "rebellious spirit" toward any authority, the marriage will not be restored. On the other hand that an obedient spirit under all authority will mean certain victory (Rom 13:1-5 and 1Sam. 15:22).

That the Lord has set up distinct boundaries of wisdom and influence for our ministry. Therefore for us to counsel outside of those boundaries will result in error (Matt. 5:19). Those boundaries are:

The man or woman must be personally seeking the Lord for their conviction concerning their marriage (Prov. 8:17).

That the man or woman in need must seek us; we will not contact any individual that another person recommends us to call (James 5:14).
