Fighting to make marriage work…

Statement of Faith

We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, we perform and mentor marriages in accordance with Biblical guidelines. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11. 6:18-20, 7:1-3 and 7:8-9; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7; 1 Timothy 1:9-11) 

There’s a lot of
negativity in our society about marriage. From attempts to redefine what
it is, to a widespread perception that it’s just too hard and will inevitably
fall apart. Marriage isn’t always viewed as the ideal it once was.

Sure, no marriage is perfect — every relationship
encounters difficulty. When both husband and wife are committed to living
according to God’s design, and working through struggles together as a team, we
can illustrate the beauty of what marriage is with the Lord at the
center. That’s a theme of today’s Focus
on the Family
:  “Valuing Marriage in a Culture That Doesn’t,”
featuring Lamar and Ronnie Tyler.

Lamar and Ronnie each brought their own difficult
story to their marriage. He was raised in a broken home and grew into
adulthood surrounded by messages of why marriage “couldn’t” work, leaving him
reluctant to try. While she came from a Christian home, her poor choices
as a young adult left her as a single mother with two children born out of
wedlock. But God’s redemptive work in both their lives prepared them to
meet, marry, blend a family and add two more children of their own. Now
they have a powerful online outreach for others who face similar challenges.

The Tylers’ ministry primarily speaks to the
African-American community, but the insights they offer on blending a family
and valuing marriage provide encouragement and hope for any demographic and
