Jesus ministered in the temple and synagogue, on the mountain and at the lake, on the streets and in the desert. However, He chose none of these places to be the basecamp for world evangelism. The chosen place for the ministry of Jesus Christ was, is, and always will be, the home.
The home is where it's at in God's plan of salvation. Our beautiful church building exists to serve the home-church and not vice versa. The home has priority and therefore we are all, in a sense, homeschool families. Dioceses, educational institutions, and international ministries are valid structures only insofar as they serve the church of the home.
For the first three hundred years of Christianity, every church was in a home. The Lord wanted to establish a home-centered Christianity. Insofar as we remember our roots in the home-church, we will see fulfillment of the Lord's Scriptural promises and world evangelism. If we forget our roots and our homes, we will surely fail.
Since the home is the foundation and the very fabric of Christian life, Christianity is only as strong as its homes. Through our catechetical programs, we aim to support you in making your home the center of Christian life. Seek the Spirit's guidance, take radical measures, make any sacrifices necessary to make your home a church-home. It's that important.
