What is it?

 
It’s easier to say what Faith@Home isn’t than what it is. It’s not a program or a sermon series. Neither is it the latest church fad.

In fact, the latest research offers a sobering reality regarding faith at home. In the last fifty years, fewer and fewer of those who grow up attending church, remain as committed followers of Jesus. For some reason, these generations find faith—the assurance of God’s love for us—easy to ignore.

Admittedly, this problem is tempting to lay at the feet of our culture. It’s Hollywood’s fault, or the work of secularism run rampant. But is it really that easy? The Scriptures are clear that the home is where faith is nurtured and passed from generation to generation (Deuteronomy 6:1-9, 2 Timothy 1:5). If so, is it time then to look at the log in our own eye?

Could it be that the church has become such a trusted partner for “outsourcing” spiritual growth that a robust, Christ-centered spiritual life in the home seems less important? The research suggests that the answer just might be yes.

So what do we do? Part of the solution is to continue shaping our ministry so that it is increasingly home-centered and church-assisted instead of the typical church-centered, home assisted model. In short, that’s Faith@Home—an initiative to help us fully embrace this difference.
