Introduction: The Marriage and Family Ministry of the Greater Bible Way Temple is a Christian ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. We provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design between one man and one woman, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles.

We exist to educate couples before and during marriage to obtain the necessary tools to fulfill a God centered, life-long relationship. We honor the sanctity of marriages by strengthening the bond between husband and Wife, with God being the center of the marriage, reflecting the Love that Christ has for His Church. It is imperative that married couples, or those wanting to get married, understand the spirituality of the union and the need for perseverance which helps sustain marriages and lead to a higher quality of married and family life.

We’re here to come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey. We support families as they seek to teach their children about God and His beautiful design for the family, protect themselves from the harmful influences of culture and equip themselves to make a greater difference in the lives of those around them. With practical resources – like our weekly workshops, life-coaching classes, one-on-one mentorship, annual dinners & conferences– we’re committed to providing trustworthy, biblical guidance and support.

Vision: To help singles understand who they are in Christ before entering into the Marriage relationship; to help couples thrive in their marriage by providing biblical principles to nourish and cherish each other in a healthy marriage and family relationship. This ministry will play an essential role in building and strengthening successful marriages despite the number of years they have been married. This ministry will also impact children, families, the church, and the entire community.

Mission: To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths. Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God in Christ Jesus through an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ through the New Birth Experience. This purpose is lived out first within our own personal lives, families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs God. Through our conferences, interactive forums, workshops, and much more, The Greater Bible Way Temple Marriage & Family Ministry equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world.

The Marriage and Family Ministry seeks to educate married and engaged couples about God’s sovereign plan and design for the family and marriage relationship. Couples will understand how to develop and maintain a spirit-filled marriage, the roles and responsibilities of the spouses within the marriage, and the wonderful blessings marriage can bring when both are obedient to God’s Word.
