Helping people take simple steps toward creating a God-honoring home.

The Point.

Show Christ

Every marriage is intended to be a masterpiece reflecting the marriage between God and His people. So we challenge believers to pursue a God-honoring marriage by giving themselves to a husband or wife through mutual submission and faithful devotion. (Gen 1:27, Gen 15, Jeremiah 3, Eph 5:22-33, Rev 21:9)

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh” This is a profound mystery – but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. (Ephesians 5:31-33)

Raise Believers

Those blessed with the gift of children and grandchildren are called to disciple the next generation as life’s greatest priority. So we challenge believers to become intentional about capturing and creating experiences that deepen the roots of faith. (Exodus 20, Deut 6, Psalm 78:1-8, Eph 6:1-4)

He commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God. (Psalm 78:5-7)

Be Jesus

A strong Christian family is where The Word becomes Flesh and Blood as we conform our lives to the image and example of the Lord Jesus Christ. So we challenge believers to walk the talk, living their faith at home in ways that will attract the next generation and the next-door neighbor to Christ. (John 1:14, Phil 2, I Tim 3, I John 3:16)

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. (I John 3:16)

Pointers.

With more than two dozen topics, HomePointe Pointers provides a biblical perspective on common family seasons and challenges along with recommended “going further” resources.  They also describe church ministry programs or a contact person to support each season/situation.

Faith Path.

Spotswood Baptist Church believes that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship. The FAITH PATH initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s faith journey one step at a time. Take advantage of the following links to begin the process in your family.

Faith Path Overview Kit

To help you jump start the process of intentionality, this kit includes two activity options called Faith Walk and Faith Handoff. We encourage you to put a day and time on your schedule right now to get started.

 

120 Day Appraisal.

The 120-Day Appraisal and Plan is used as the starting point for families as they move toward intentionality.  They are designed to be a self-assessment of how intentional you have been over the past 120 days as well as help you create a simple plan of one or two easy steps you can take to become more intentional in the coming 120 days.

The 120-Day Plan includes three major sections: 1) an Appraisal section for married couples, parents/grandparents, and singles 2) a Family Seasons section to identify which family season and special situations apply, and 3) a 120-Day Plan section to create a plan of one or two simple steps to take.
