Statement of Philosophy
CFC-FFL adheres to a set of beliefs and ideals from which flow its
Christian attitudes, values and behavior, as well as its programs,
teachings and approaches to Christian renewal within the context of
BELIEVE in marriage as an indissoluble institution as taught by our
Lord Jesus Christ (Mt 19:6). WE BELIEVE that God created marriage
primarily for love between man and woman, and for the procreation and
proper rearing of children.
BELIEVE that God created man and wife with equal personal worth and
dignity. WE BELIEVE that God ordained order in the family by giving
the man the role as head of the family and the woman as helpmate and
support, which roles best express their complementarity.
BELIEVE in the inalienable and irreplaceable right and responsibility
of parents to educate their children. WE BELIEVE that children need to
be educated in essential human and Christian values for them to become
responsible and mature members of society.
BELIEVE that the family, in practicing the gospel message, shares in
the life and mission of the Church—through prayers, evangelization,
and service to others, especially the poor.
BELIEVE that Christian family renewal can best be achieved by inviting
Jesus to be the Lord of our homes, by allowing the power of the Holy
Spirit to lead our family lives, and through the full use of all
spiritual gifts at our disposal.
