We believe that the family is the foundational unit of human society, established by the creational intent of God; and is rooted in God’s good gift of marriage, which the Creator defines as the lifelong union of one man and one woman (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:18-25).
It is of great concern that the biblical vision of the family is obscured by current attempts to redefine marriage itself and to marginalize the importance of the nuclear family; and is undermined by a divorce culture that sees marriage as a temporary social arrangement; and is eclipsed even more scandalously by domestic violence, marital infidelity, abandonment, and divorce, sometimes within our own churches. Therefore the Heritage Fellowship Church of God unequivocally affirms that marriage is a covenant relationship between a man and a woman and rejects all attempts to redefine marriage in terms of same-sex unions and behavior.
We call on parents to assume their responsibility as the primary protectors and instructors of their children and to devote themselves to instill godly disciplines in their own lives and the lives of their children.
We call on our churches to model before our culture family structures that reflect the biblical vision of the Kingdom of God and the love of Christ for His church.
