FIVE PRINCIPLES For Living And Passing On Faith by Vibrant Faith Ministries

What do you think each of these principles mean and how can you live them as a family?

  1. Faith is formed by the power of the Holy Spirit through personal, trusted relationships – often in our own homes..
  2. The church is a living partnership between the ministry of the congregation and ministry of the home..
  3. Where Christ is present in faith, the home is church too.
  4. Faith is caught more than it is taught.
  5. If we want Christian children and youth, we need Christian adults.
