It is not an exaggeration to suggest that all biblical life begins with the family. Unfortunately, we are immersed in a culture that continually entices us to embrace principles of family and parenting that are contrary to our biblical calling. As a church whose stated purpose is to seek gospel transformation for ourselves, our city, and our world, we believe a central place for that transformation to begin is in our families.
Taught by Louis DeLaura, this class (which took place in Fall 2017) facilitates this transformation through practical wisdom and the casting of a biblical vision for family and parenting.

Satisfaction or Sanctification?
Please enjoy listening to the 6-part seminar on marriage led by Louis DeLaura in February 2017.
Marriage is hard. There are real reasons for that. In many ways, the bond between husband and wife is the most challenging of all human relationships. But it becomes even more difficult when we embrace ideas and expectations contrary to God’s purposes and intentions.
- Why did God establish marriage & what did He intend it to be?
- Why is marriage difficult and what are its principal struggles?
- What is God’s proposition for the redemption of our marriages?
- How do we live out God’s intentions for our marriages?
