America’s home education movement is bringing about a renewal of biblical family life. As fathers and mothers turn their hearts to home, reject the idolatry of the modern youth culture, and seek a vision for strong family life, many are turning to the local church—only to find opposition. Sadly, many families are responding to the crisis of the local church by simply giving up. The tragic result is nomadic families that flit from church to church, or renegades who refuse to place themselves under the accountability of a local church. The damage to the families is incalculable.
God requires His people to be under biblical local churches with biblical preaching, biblical church government, biblical ordinances, and biblical discipline. So how do we unite church and home?
The National Center for Family-Integrated Churches seeks to encourage unity between church and home through family-integrated worship and promoting the role of fathers in the life of the church and home. Special emphasis is placed on the sufficiency of Scripture for faith and practice.
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to listen to a wide variety of messages that cover issues as distinct as the biblical doctrine of church membership and church discipline, to the history of the Sunday school movement, to remedies against tale-bearing and gossip in the church and the evangelical community, to the care of single mothers, the handicapped, and the fatherless in family-integrated churches.
