God is pursuing a love relationship with us that is real and personal and we believe marriage is the most intimate arena of human relationships, designed by God, through which He can demonstrate His love for us as individuals.

The reason marriages, among Christians, are under even greater attack is to destroy the Church’s effectiveness in the world. The way to undermine the effectiveness of the Church, the “Bride of Christ”, is to undermine the marriages and families in the church.

Studies show that when marriages fail:

  • The risk of poverty increases
  • Parent-child relationships become strained and often crumble
  • Crime increases
  • Children fail academically
  • Fatherless children are more likely to abuse drugs
  • Parental divorce doubles the odds that adult children will also divorce

When marriages thrive, lives thrive:

  • Spouses are healthier and more productive
  • Children’s physical and mental health is protected
  • Earnings are higher
  • Life expectancy increases
  • Children are more likely to succeed

The Covenant Marriage Movement prepares couples for lifelong covenant marriages, strengthens healthy marriages and improves struggling marriages by providing life-changing, Christ-centered resources through personal conferences and Bible study materials along with congregational and online resources.
