We at Bethany understand that the marriage union is one that is not a human invention or convenience, but rather is a God-blessed relationship, intended to fill many of the deepest needs of individual women and men, as well as mankind as a whole. We also believe that in our sinful state, this union must be nurtured through hard work, wisdom, love, commitment, and prayer.
Likewise, families, also given to us from the hand of a gracious God, must not be taken for granted, but rather shaped and nurtured through that same combination of hard work, wisdom, love, commitment, and prayer.
We desire to work along-side the people of Bethany in that process of nurturing these vital marriage and family relationships. The Bethany staff wants to be in partnership with Bethany’s people, to provide resources, knowledge, and support, without usurping the authority and responsibilities of wives and husbands, fathers and mothers.
