Deut. 6: 4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one![b] 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Joshua 24:15 But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Mal. 2:15 He seeks godly offspring (NKJV)
With these words the Lord has given parents the mandate and mission to be the primary faith providers for their children. God has created the family in order that we may learn who God is and what is His purpose for mankind (Ps. 82:6, Jn. 11:34, Rom. 3:15-16, Eph. 3:14-15).
The CGI Toronto Family Ministry believes in equipping parents to bring the faith at home and to support parents with instilling godly values in their children. To this end, we have developed a structure of ”Spiritual Milestones” in which we recognize important life milestones along the Christian journey of faith. Moreover, we have developed and continue to work on Parent Seminars, Church Celebrations, Faith Talks, and Spiritual Blessings which will reinforce and teach the core competencies between each milestone. The end result is to create an atmosphere of strong unity among the church in supporting godly families so that our families can raise children equipped and focused on serving the Lord.
We are always in need of volunteers who share our vision and would like to contribute in this vital ministry.
