…”A cord of three strands is not quickly broken”

The Indestructible Marriage
The same God who supernaturally bound you together in the covenant of marriage is longing to help turn your relationship into the love affair He wants it to be. The first step requires embracing the important truth that your marriage is not an accident. Many couples are so focused on their own pain, their own needs and their own selfish desires that it’s impossible for them to see God’s bigger picture. The institution of marriage still works. God created marriage and the Bible is the instruction manual for having a successful relationship.
There is an indestructible plan for your marriage!
Our Biblical Foundation:
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 NIV
Ecclesiastes 4:12 demonstrates that when Jesus is the focal point of relationships, they become much stronger. In a society that is constantly demeaning marriage and its God-centered design, individuals and couples need to be strengthened by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit in order to persevere and demonstrate His love to the world.
The vision and function of the “3 Strands” Marriage Ministry is to support engaged and married couples in their relationship with each other – and with the Lord, always keeping Jesus as the focus – the center “STRAND”. We have found that as couples grow closer to God, individually and jointly, they will also grow closer to one another.
- We will assist couples by pointing them toward Scripture and encouraging them to apply Biblical instruction as the basis for building and strengthening their marriages.
- We will accomplish this through regular meetings, bible teaching, times of fellowship, events and activities.
- We will develop counseling teams who will provide biblical pre-marital and post-marital counseling.
- We will give couples support and instruction from God’s Word. Although we will be using various resources as teaching tools, the Bible is the only resource needed to maintain a solid, Spirit-filled marriage. We will encourage couples who want a strong, Christ-honoring marriage to seek God in prayer and be obedient to His Word.
It is our prayer that this ministry can communicate Biblical principles to couples. As they apply these standards to their lives, they will better understand God’s sovereign plan for them as individuals and couples.
And bring Him glory as they accomplish His will within their relationship.
