Christian Life Program

What is the Christian Life Program?

The Christian Life Program (CLP) is an integrated course intended to lead the program participants into a renewed understanding of God’s call to them as Christian couples or individuals. 

What are the goals of the CLP?

The different topics of the talks are as follows

The first 3 sessions present the absolute basics of Christian life, with emphasis on our hearing it with an adult perspective. The next 3 sessions present the kind of life that God calls us to: it spells out the personal response involved in receiving Jesus as Lord and Saviour and helps couples to make a reorientation of their lives around Jesus. And finally, the last sessions help the couples to commit their lives in a serious way to Jesus. It helps them appropriate for their lives the power of the Holy Spirit. It provides the basics for continuing spiritual growth.

Is there any cost involved?

There are no fees or any monetary expenses required of participants. The only investment required is their time and their openness.

What happens after the Christian Life Program?

After the CLP, those who finish are invited to join CFC. When they do and after making their commitment, they are made part of a small cell group called a Household. The Household is composed of 5 to 7 couples who meet weekly for mutual support and encouragement in the Christian life, under the direction of a Household Leader.

What is the nature of this household?

The purpose of the Household group is to build an environment for the support of the Christian life of couples, and to provide a means for encouraging and hastening spiritual growth. It provides friendship and brotherhood. It helps people overcome obstacles to growth in the Christian life.

The Household meeting is held in the homes of the group members, on rotation basis. A typical meeting would involve some time for prayers, a time for sharing or discussion, and finally some time for fellowship. It would normally last for about 2.5 hours.

How about Christian formation?

Finishing the CLP is just the beginning of a long process of growth and transformation in Christ. As such, CFC provides a continuing program of formation, which includes teachings, recollections, retreats, etc.
