Statement of Faith

What We Believe
 

Denominational Ties and Beliefs
The Bonded Family (TBF) is a non-denominational ministry. 
We respect the uniqueness of faith and beliefs within the body of Christ. 
TBF has worked successfully with church and ministry leaders from most all of the leading denominations in America.  Their main purpose it to point people to the Lord as the best way to find success in blended family life. We have seen firsthand that GOD CAN take a step-family...
FROM BROKEN TO BLENDED TO BONDED.

The below 'what we believe' statements reflect their statement of faith. 

The Bible
We believe the entire Bible, the Old and New Testament is the inspired Word of God.   In that for blended families, we clearly state that the Bible is the marriage handbook, the parenting manual, the relationship coaching workbook, the finest 'how to' guide, the best 'counseling' tips and advise writing in the world.
We understand this to mean that the whole Bible is inspired, that holy men of God "were moved by the Holy Spirit" (
2 Peter 1:21) to write the very words of Scripture.  We believe that this divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of Scripture and We believe that the whole Bible is without error. We believe that all Scripture centers around the Lord Jesus Christ in His person, work, and in His first and second coming. We also believe that all Scripture was designed for our practical instruction. (Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:11; 2 Timothy 3:16)

The Trinity of God
We believe in the one true and living God, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  That for families to succeed they must 'bond' to God first in their own heart, then their marriage, and then the family will best be able to 'bond' and fall under God's guidance.

The Existence of the devil - satan
We believe that satan is real, the author of sin, and constantly tries to hurt, kill and destroy marriages, families, children and relationships.  John 10:10   To say one believes in God, but yet doesn't want to talk about or acknowledge spiritual warfare exists is destined to struggle.  (note:  I never give the true enemy of families a capital letter)   

Atonement For Sin
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe on Him are redeemed by His shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven; He is our Advocate. (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7; Hebrews 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2)

Salvation
We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9)

The Christian Walk
We believe that we have a holy calling to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit.  Fully blended families have unique and challenging dynamics that set forth situation that will tempt or produce opportunities to stumble.
No one is perfect, not one. Individuals must choose to keep looking to God for the courage, strength and power. (Joshua 1:9
Romans 6:11-13; 8:2, 4, 12-13; Galatians 5:16-23; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1 John 1:4-7; 3:5-9)

Church Attendance and Fellowship
We believe that regular attendance in a bible-based church of choice.   Without reservation, doubt or hesitation we strongly encourage consistent fellowship with people who share your common belief and understanding that God is the best way to keep your family 'bonded' in all ways.  The enemy of your family wants you to be apart from people who will support you.  We also encourage churches to create Blended Family Fellowships of one kind or another.   Contact us for Resources for that.

The Great Commission
Until the return of Christ, it is the Christian’s duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of Christ's Great Commission and to minister in His name to a needy world. The Bonded Family reaches out to a very large harvest field...step-families in America.   We are to be instruments of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit ministers redemption and reconciliation in the world, especially into families, marriages and children. (Matthew 25:31-46; 28:18-20)
