Marriage Ministry

Welcome to Our Marriage Ministry Page

ACTS Building Blocks to a Successful Relationship

We want to first say thank you for visiting our web page and showing interest in wanting to know more about our marriage ministry.

Mission Statement

To teach, train, mentor, and provide support to strengthen good marriages, save troubled marriages, and reconcile broken marriages, while inspiring, encouraging, and equipping those who are married and those who are preparing for marriage with practical, Biblical resources through e-mail, our web site, teaching and one-on-one opportunities, while revealing the heart of God within marriage.

Our Vision

Jesus changed the world one life at a time, and we are privileged to continue His vision with our marriage. The love we show for our husband or wife demonstrates Christ’s love and inspires others. Our marriage encourages each other and invites the Holy Spirit to guide us in strengthening and giving significance, openness and forgiveness towards one another.

The Friendship of Marriage

Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights. 1 Corinthians 13:5 AMP

What love helps a marriage last? You may be surprised because I’m not going to begin with agape, which is what most people expect. I’m starting with another kind of love—friendship love.

In a national study of hundreds of couples who had fulfilling marriages, couples were given 39 factors that would best explain the success of their marriages and why they were successful. Both husbands and wives were asked to put these factors in order of importance for their marriages. The fascinating fact was that the top selected by both husbands and wives were the same.

The first and second choices reflect the type of love we’re considering here. They were: “My spouse is my best friend” and “I like my spouse as a person.” This love is called phileo. In the Bible, philos means friendship love. Romantic love cannot sustain a relationship, but companion or friendship love can. A friend is someone you like to be with. You enjoy his or her company; you like his or her personality; you can play and work together well. You have shared interests.

It’s not that you are loved only because of what you share, but by sharing you develop a different kind of love that means companionship, communication, and cooperation. One writer describes it as “compassionate love”: This may be defined as a strong bond, including a tender attachment, enjoyment of the other’s company and friendship. It is not characterized by wild passion and constant excitement, although these feelings may be experienced from time to time.

The main difference between passionate and compassionate love is that the former thrives on deprivation, frustration, a high arousal level, and absence. The latter thrives on contact and requires time to develop and mature.

How is the friendship factor in your marriage?
