Relationships: Christian Family Life

How does being a Christian affect family life?

 

Does being a Christian make a difference to your family life?

Christians believe that family is important for a number of reasons:

  • Procreation - to have children.
  • Security and education of children.
  • Support and protection of family members.
  • Teach children about God - Ephesians 6:1–4

How does the church help Christian families?

  • Provide support and advice for parents.
  • Rites of passage, marking different times of life.
  • Sunday school and youth group teaching for children.
  • Opportunities for teenagers to mix with peers who hold the same Christian beliefs.
