Soli Deo Gloria!

The Biblical Family Network exists to support and encourage the family through the production and distribution of media that brings brings glory to the triune God and lifts up his Word as the standard for living and the authoritative guide to the way of salvation and knowledge in Him.

Statement of Faith

GOD – We believe in one God—Creator of all, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

JESUS – We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory. We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for redemption, and only those who receive Christ through repentance and faith are born of the Holy Spirit and are the children of God.

THE HOLY SPIRIT – We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling every Christian is able to live a godly life.

THE BIBLE – We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God, the complete and sufficient revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the final authority for all Christian faith and life.

MAN – We believe that man, created in the image of God, fell into sin and is therefore lost. Only through the blood of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained. We believe in the resurrection of both those who believe in Jesus and those who do not believe: those believing to eternal life with Christ and those unbelieving to eternal punishment in hell.

THE FAMILY – We believe that the family was established by God for His glory and that as Christians, we have a responsibility to promote truth and social policy that improves the strength and health of the family, as God designed it.

MARRIAGE – We believe that marriage is a God-ordained, covenant relationship between a man and a woman, and the foundation of family life.

CHILDREN – We believe that all children, born and unborn, are a gift from God and an important and valuable part of God’s Kingdom and the family, and that parents have been charged with the responsibility of bringing up their children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

Core Values

Soli Deo Gloria – Our highest purpose is to glorify God in everything we think, say, and do.

Christ is Preeminent – “And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.” Colossians 1:18

Biblical Authority and Biblical Worldview – The Bible is completely authoritative and sound Biblical worldview is critical for faithful living. Biblical worldview must be cultivated through regular, committed personal study, and it must be transmitted to our families through diligent teaching “when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 7:7

The Family – The family is the first sphere of human government established by God. The preservation of the family, according to the Biblical model, is necessary for the preservation of every other sphere of culture.

The Gospel – “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
