BIBLICAL BASIS

We live in a time and culture where there is no longer an option for shielding our children from the events and values of the world.  God’s Word gives the directive for shielding our children from worldly events and values.  Deuteronomy 6:7 – “And thou (parents) shalt teach them (God’s commands) diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk to them (your children) when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down and when thou risest up.”  From this Bible verse, we see the involvement of all family members, parents and children.  This command, given by Moses, serves as a scriptural directive to build up family worship and stability.  Worshiping God begins in the home and involves the entire family. Family Altar is a “COMMITMENT” by a family to come together at a set time and place to worship God through family prayer and Bible study.  It is a vital and important practice in a Christian home because it affirms and acknowledges God as the center of that home as well as that family.  Family Altar serves as a key building block for a strong, healthy Christian family.

OBJECTIVES

Family Altar begins at home.  Worshiping God together as a family engenders family interaction, a time to sit down together to listen, learn and pray.  It promotes healthy and enriched family relationships and creates an ideal environment for parents to nurture and strengthen their children’s faith.  Worshiping God in a family setting is a viable channel for God’s Word to be passed from one generation to the next.  FAMILY ALTAR promotes strong, healthy Christian families; strong, healthy Christian families promote strong, healthy churches; strong, healthy churches promote strong, healthy communities, etc.
