Value 5: Christ Centredness

Christ centred families welcome Jesus to share their everyday life and to take part in all they are and do. The door of their home is open to those in need. They delight to serve Christ as a family. They are salt and light in their community and spread the gospel together. They know Christ’s joy and peace. Their home is full of fun and laughter. Christ centred families reflect the relationships of harmony and love between the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit within the Trinity.
However we will not enjoy Christ centred family life unless our own lives are centred on Christ and filled with his Spirit. This is a call to make Christ Lord of all our lives. We can know the peace of God in our families when we are living Christ centred lives ourselves.

We are on a journey with Jesus…..
As Christians, neither we nor our families are perfect but we press toward that goal with God’s help. Following the example of Jesus, the church invites all to join us on this journey and especially welcomes those whose family situation falls short of these Five Family Values. Accept one another just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God’.
