How to maintain a successful marriage and family.

Family Life Education: Principles and Practices for Effective Outreach Family Life Education: Working With Families Across the Life Span
FLSERC believe God is the originator of the family. It was established by God in His inaugural act of the marriage between a man and a woman. The Bible further defines the family through God's instruction for married couples to have children, whether by birth or by adoption. The purpose of the family is to glorify and honour God by forming the spiritual, emotional, physical, and economic foundation for individuals, the church, and any society.
It is at home that children see manhood and womanhood modelled. It is at home that moral values are taught by parents and placed into the hearts of their children. It is at home that people see the reality of a relationship with Jesus Christ modelled. It is at home that people learn to live out their convictions. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to upholding the concept of family as God's original and primary means of producing a godly offspring and passing on godly values from generation to generation. (Ephesians 3:14-15; Genesis 1:26-28; Romans 8:15,23; John 1:12; Galatians 3:29; Psalm 78:5-7; Deuteronomy 6:4-9)

Family Life Education: An Introduction Christian Educator's Handbook on Family Life Education, The
FLSERC believe God, not man, created marriage. The Bible teaches that the covenant of marriage is sacred and lifelong. The Bible makes it clear that marriage is a legally binding public declaration of commitment and a private consummation between one man and one woman, never between the same sex. Therefore, FLSERC believe God gives a wife to a husband and a husband to a wife, and they are to receive one another as God's unique and personal provision to help meet their mutual needs.
We believe God created marriage for the purpose of couples glorifying God as one flesh, parenting godly children, and enjoying sexual pleasure. As iron sharpens iron, we believe God uses marriage to sharpen a man and woman into the image of Jesus Christ. Just as the Trinity reflects equal worth with differing roles, God created a man and a woman with equal worth but with differing roles and responsibilities in marriage.
Finally, we declare the marriage commitment must be upheld in our culture as that sacred institution of God in which men and women can experience the truest sense of spiritual, emotional, and physical intimacy, so that the two can become one. (Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:30-32; 1 Corinthians 7:3; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9, 12:25; Proverbs 27:17; Romans 1:26-27, 8:29; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 22:30; Deuteronomy 24:5; Song of Solomon)

Husband and Wife: A Novel What a Husband Needs from His Wife: *Physically *Emotionally *Spiritually
God has charged each husband to fulfil the responsibility of being the "head" (servant leader) of his wife. A husband will give account before God for how he has loved, served, and provided for his wife. We reject the notion that a husband is to dominate his wife. Likewise, we reject the notion that a husband is to abdicate his responsibilities to lead his wife. Rather, we believe his responsibility is to love his wife. This love is characterized by taking the initiative to serve her, care for her, and honour her as a gift from God. We believe his responsibility is to protect his wife and help provide for her physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

We also believe a husband is to seek after and highly regard his wife's opinion and counsel and treat her as the equal partner she is in Christ. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to exhort and implore men not to abuse their God-given responsibilities as husbands, but rather to initiate a sacrificial love for their wives, in the same way Jesus Christ initiated sacrificial love and demonstrated it fully on the cross. (Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:22-33; Colossians 3:19; 1 Peter 3:7; 1 Timothy 5:8)

How to Be the Almost Perfect Husband: By Wives Who Know The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands
We believe God has charged each wife to fulfil the responsibility of being her husband's "helper." A wife will give account to God for how she has loved, respected, and given support to her husband. We uphold the biblical truth that she is of equal value with her husband before God. We reject the notion that a wife should assume the leadership responsibilities of her husband. Likewise, We reject the notion that a wife should passively defer to the dominance of her husband. We believe that her responsibility is to willingly and intelligently affirm, respect, and submit to her husband as the leader in the relationship and in his vocational calling. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to exhorting a wife to be in support of her husband by accepting and excelling in her responsibility as his helper. (Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:22-33; Colossians 3:18; 1 Peter 3:1-6; Proverbs 31:10-12)

The Bible clearly states that marriage is the only context for sexual intimacy. We believe contemporary culture is pressing single people to engage prematurely in acts that are intended only for the context of marriage. Our culture has rejected God's plan for intimacy by promoting sexual promiscuity of various kinds and, as a consequence, has brought upon itself sexual diseases and relational dysfunctions. FLSERC believe in sexual purity and fidelity.
Therefore, FLSERC are committed to training parents to teach their children at an early age to respect their sexuality and to preserve their virginity and purity until marriage. FLSERC are committed to communicating the message to teenagers, single adults, and married couples that sexual intimacy is available only in the context of marriage. (Genesis 2:24-25; Romans 1:24-27; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8)

God has charged a father to execute the responsibilities of a family leader. He is accountable before God to lead his family by sacrificially loving his wife and children and by providing for their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. The greatest way a father can love his children is to love their mother. Children gain much of their concept of God from their fathers.
We believe a father should teach his children, by instruction and example, truth from the Bible and how to apply it practically in daily life. Therefore, a father should spend a quantity of time, as well as quality time, with each child. A father should demonstrate godly character revealed in humility, tenderness, and patience toward his children. A father should demonstrate love by practicing consistent discipline with each child. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to turning the hearts of fathers back to their children by emphasizing the importance of their role as "father." FLSERC are committed to exhorting every father to model a love for God and His Word, to model love for his wife, and to love his children. (Malachi 4:6; Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:20-21; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; 1 Timothy 3:4-5, 5:8)

Mother Loving Family® Sterling Silver Pendant - Mother and 2 Children
God has uniquely designed women to be mothers. The greatest way a mother can love her children is to love their father. God has created a woman with an innate and special ability to nurture and care for her children.
Therefore, FLSERC believe mothers are the primary people who execute the vital responsibilities of loving, nurturing, and mentoring children. These responsibilities should be met before a mother contemplates any other duties. Our culture has devalued the role of a mother by placing greater significance on activities outside the home than on those inside the home.
FLSERC realize there are cases where a mother will find it necessary to work outside the home (e.g. financial distress, single parenthood); however, we also believe some couples have made career and lifestyle choices that result in de-emphasizing the mother's role as nurturer. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to presenting a biblical framework through which couples can rightly evaluate their priorities in light of a mother's role. FLSERC are committed to elevating motherhood by rightly assessing its exalted value in God's economy of the family. FLSERC are committed to exhorting mothers to model love for God and His Word, to model love for her husband, and to love her children. (Titus 2:4-5; 1 Thessalonians 2:7; Proverbs 14:1, 31:1-31; Deuteronomy 6:6, 11:19; Ezekiel 16:44-45)

The Beginner's Bible: Timeless Children's Stories Children's Everyday Bible
Children are the gifts of God and should be received and treated as such. Children have a special responsibility to God in obeying and honouring their parents. A child's identity and spiritual growth is either helped or hindered by his parents' devotion to God, to one another, and to him. Parents should see themselves as God's ambassadors, working to build strong character in the lives of their children through consistent godly living, nurturing, discipline, and teaching them right from wrong. FLSERC are committed to God's plan for passing His love down through the ages by encouraging parents to love their children "so the generations to come might know" the love and forgiveness of Christ. (Ephesians 6:1-3; Colossians 3:20; Psalms 78:5-8, 127:3-5, 139:13-16; Proverbs 4:1, 6:20)

God has allowed some couples to be without biological children according to His sovereign plan in their lives. Couples without children are of no less value before God than those with children. FLSERC are committed to encouraging childless couples to pass on a godly legacy through involvement with children in their immediate families, churches, and communities. (Luke 1:6-7; Romans 8:28-29)

The Gifts of Being Grand So You're Expecting to be a Grandparent!: More than 50 Things You Should Know About Grandparenting
Grandparents are to be honoured as valued family members. Their wisdom in living should be sought and passed on to their children and their children's children. we also believe that grandparents have the responsibility of teaching and modelling to their grandchildren how to know Jesus Christ and grow in a relationship with Him as well as passing along biblical principles for godly living. The Old Testament is filled with examples of grandfathers and grandmothers who excelled in their roles of grand parenting.
Therefore, FLSERC are committed to giving honour to grandparents by encouraging their children and grandchildren to listen to their voices of wisdom. (1 Timothy 5:4; Genesis 18:18-19; Proverbs 17:6; Psalm 78)

Church History in Plain Language, 3rd Edition Christian History Made Easy: 13 Weeks to a Better Understanding of Church History
The family and the church are interdependent. A primary responsibility of the church is to help build godly families, and godly families also help build the church. The family supplies the relational rudiments of the local church. The local church is the spiritual home where families should corporately worship God. It is the place where the knowledge and love of God may be communicated to fathers, mothers, and children.
Therefore, FLSERC are committed to exhorting families to support the local church through their involvement. We are also committed to exhorting the local church to uphold the priority of helping build godly marriages and families. (1 Timothy 3:15; Ephesians 5:22-33; Philemon 1:2; Colossians 4:15)

Nolo's Essential Guide to Divorce The Divorce Organizer & Planner
God's plan for marriage is that it be a lifelong commitment between one man and one woman. God hates divorce. Divorce brings harm to every person involved. Therefore, reconciliation of a marriage should be encouraged and divorce discouraged. I also believe that God allows for divorce in certain situations, not because He wills it, but because of the hardness of people's hearts. The Bible teaches that God allows for divorce in the case of adultery and in the case where an unbelieving spouse has chosen to abandon the commitment of marriage.
We believe, however, that it is God's priority that marital oneness be restored and that, through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, forgiveness and reconciliation be experienced. That in the unfortunate cases of abuse and abandonment, God has provided protection for an abused spouse and provision for child support through the church, civil law, godly counsellors, prayer, and other practical measures. God can restore broken people and broken marriages by His grace, by the power of His Spirit, and by His practical truths found in the Bible. (Malachi 2:16; Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-9; Mark 10:6-12; Luke 16:18; Romans 7:1-3; Romans 13:1-5; 1 Corinthians 7:15)

FLSERC believe that, ideally, a child needs the influence of both a father and mother for healthy development in life and relationships. At the same time, we recognize that God's grace is sufficient and that He is a father to the fatherless and a husband to the husbandless. We also believe He is a guardian to children without a mother and a friend to a husband who has lost his wife.

We believe God, by His grace, can use the void left from a missing parent to accomplish His eternal purposes of building Christ like character in single parents and their children. We believe a single parent and his or her children are a family and that the Bible contains principles for them to grow as a family. The local church should be a home for single parents, providing their children with godly people who serve as role models in place of the missing parent.
Therefore, FLSERC are committed to exhorting Christians within the local church to creatively help meet the needs associated with single-parent homes. FLSERC are committed to comforting and encouraging single-parent families by providing resources and developing biblical principles to assist those who struggle in the role of a single parent. (Psalm 68:5-6; 1 Corinthians 7:32; James 1:27; 1 Timothy 5:3-16; Romans 8:28-29; Luke 18:3-5)

God has allowed men and women, either by circumstance or by choice, to endure difficult and painful consequences in their marriages and family relationships. We also believe God gives abundant grace to the broken, blended, and single-parent families.
Therefore, FLSERC believe He can and does enable them to carry out His functions and principles for healthy family life. FLSERC are committed to comforting, encouraging, and teaching these families God's principles of marriage and family life. (James 1:27; 1 Timothy 5:16; Philippians 4:13)

Work and the Family
Work and Family - Allies or Enemies?: What Happens When Business Professionals Confront Life Choices How Your Church Family Works: Understanding Congregations as Emotional Systems
Work is an important and necessary aspect of one's service to God and one's responsibility to provide for the needs of the family. Security and significance cannot be found through pursuing career goals or financial achievement apart from one's responsibility to God and one's spouse and family. Instead, those needs are best met in the warmth of a home where parents and children are experiencing harmony in their relationships with each other and with Jesus Christ. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to challenging any person or couple to rearrange their priorities so that over the course of a lifetime they can be successful at home and not merely successful in their careers. (Revelation 3:14-22; Ephesians 6:7-8; Matthew 6:33; 1 Timothy 5:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:10-12)

Marriage Education

We believe single adults who choose to marry should be taught the biblical principles of marriage. We also believe the education of a married couple does not end after the wedding ceremony is over, but continues throughout life. Therefore, FLSERC believe that both premarital and post-marital education is helpful and essential in a couple's growth toward and in oneness. FLSERC are committed to elevating, establishing, and teaching the precepts of marriage by which single adults can rightly evaluate their relationships and equip themselves for marriage. FLSERC are committed to providing the teaching and training necessary to equip married couples to live a lifetime together as one. (Titus 2; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Acts 16:31-34; John 4:53)

Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit is the agent and teacher of a godly marriage and family. We believe when Christian couples and their children consistently yield to His control and power, they will experience harmony in their marriages and families. Therefore, FLSERC are committed to sharing the ministry of the Holy Spirit with people so they may know God better, make Him known to others, and appropriate His power in fulfilling their duties in marriage and family relationships. (John 14:26, 15:26, 16:5-15; Ephesians 5:18-21)
