The home is the most important place on earth. Dorothy in Wizard of Oz says it this way, "There's no place like home." This is true in every area of life. We learn how to talk, how to walk, how to love, how to respect, how to work, and the list could go on for a long time. But one area that often gets overlooked is the area of spiritual development.
Often times the job of spiritual development gets handed off to the church. And the church is a good place for spiritual development. However, the church only has a limited amount of time with your children to help the grow their faith. And there's even a larger obstacle than time when it come to spiritual development. If the truth of God is not lived in the home, then all the churches work will be of no effect. That's why we believe that the home is the best place for faith to grow.
In this teaching series, our Pastor's will use the scripture to show you how to develop a Faith House. That is a home that operates on faith principles. We will also show some current finding from the Barna Research Group that shows when it comes to spiritual development, nothing has a much impact as your home.
