Faith Formation is a Parental Role (Part II)

Our discipleship as parents, includes how we raise our kids. Studies show how important it is for parents to practice what they preach. To live out our faith with our kids! And when we do, the Church becomes a helpful partner.

Five Principles for Living And Passing on Faith
(from Vibrant Faith Ministries)

1. Faith is formed by the power of the Holy Spirit through personal, trusted relationships – often in our own homes.

2. The church is a living partnership between the ministry of the congregation and ministry of the home.

3. Where Christ is present in faith, the home is church too.

4. Faith is caught more than it is taught.

5. If we want Christian children and youth, we need Christian adults.

With these 5 principles in mind, read again that study, and see how influential parents are!
