Helping You Build a Strong Family
One Step at a Time
One of our core beliefs at First Assembly is that God designed the family as the primary place
character and faith formation. Our goal is to resource, equip and encourage you to as you take steps toward becoming a God honoring and happy family. First@Home exists to help you foster a culture of intentionality by following the three simple objectives.
MAKE IT EASY
We hope to make it easy for you to become intentional at home by providing bite-sized, life-season specific ideas and resources.
MAKE IT LIKELY
We hope to make it more likely that you will be intentional by nudging you to incorporate holy habits into your existing family-life routines.
MAKE A CLEAR PATH
We coach parents to nurture the faith of their children one step at a time using age based spiritual instruction called, Faith Path.
THE POINT OF HOME
Most of us are called to marriage and parenting. So, it's imperative that we understand the purpose and priority of family life.
Every marriage is meant to be a masterpiece reflecting THE marriage between God and His people.
(Genesis 1:27, Genesis 15, Jeremiah 3, Ephesians 5:22-23, Revelations 21:9)
Those blessed with the gift of children and grandchildren are called to disciple the next generation as life's greatest honor and highest priority. (Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 6, Psalm 78:1-8, Ephesians 6:1-4)
A strong Christian family attracts the next generation and the next door neighbor to Christ as The Word becomes flesh and blood and we conform our lives to the image and example of Christ. (John 1:14, Philippians 2, 1 Timothy 3, 1 John 3:16)
These truths become a reality in our homes when we consistently
Pursue a God-honoring marriage by giving oneself to a husband or wife through mutual submission and faithful devotion.
PASS THE FAITH
Intentionally disciple our own children by capturing and creation experiences that deepen the roots of faith.
WALK THE TALK
Live out our faith at home in ways that will attract the next generation and next door neighbor to Christ.
Young adults can become intentional about their future.
Couple work toward becoming one and create times of connection to thrive.
Parents can launch simple faith formation routines.
Grandparents can use their significant influence to point the next generation toward God.
