In the book of Genesis, the book of origins, we see the Triune God unfolding His eternal power, glory and infinite wisdom when He created the heavens and the earth.
We read from the Holy Scriptures that the creation of man is glorious because man is created after the image and likeness of God.The creation of woman out of the rib of man is to provide man with a help meet for him. When God brought the woman to the man, we hear the divine proclamation of the institution of marriage.
Marriage is likened to a key that unlocks the door to an intimate relationship which brings about the conception, birth and organic development of the family. As it was in the beginning, it is now and it shall be that marriage and the development of the family should serve the purpose to give all glory and honor to the LORD our maker.
As such, the Family Support Ministry (FSM) of Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church (CERC) has the calling to encourage covenantal family development that is subservient to Holy Scriptures and hope to fulfill this by calling upon our families:
May this support ministry be an instrument through which the LORD our God is pleased to use to help members build up their families in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4
