Domestic Violence in OUR Church?--a 13 week guide to healing our families-- is the first in a series of the Truth, Love and Freedom Bible Study Guides.

In this Bible Study Guide, we will examine God’s design for families, the myriad faces evil takes in assaulting our homes and God’s methods to bring healing here and now.

Paperback (186 pages)


We’ve all seen them - the startling programs on TV highlighting stories of families torn apart by abuse. Perhaps we even know someone in our own neighborhood or family who has experienced domestic violence. Yet, it’s easy to believe that Christian homes are different—that “we” are different. Surely when people become church members, that type of abuse stops!

Think again. Recent research indicates that the percentages of domestic violence among Christian intimate partners are as high and, in some categories, even a bit higher than in non-Christian homes.

  • > The Bible, as the inspired word of God, is a reliable and faithful revelation of God and His plan to heal and restore mankind from sin.
  • > God is love (1John 4:8). His character of love is the foundation of His government and the law of love is the principle upon which all life in the universe is designed to operate. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit exist in the plurality of perfect outward moving, other-centered giving, beneficence and love. The health and happiness of all creation is dependent upon harmony with God’s law of love.
  • > Sin at its core is selfishness the very opposite of God’s character of love.
  • > Sin originated with Satan and mankind believed Satan’s lies about God and rebelled against God and His law of love. Thus mankind became sinful/selfish and destined to die save God’s saving grace.
  • > Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus, Himself being fully God, is the exact representation of the Father, the member of the Godhead through whom all things were made and equal in majesty, authority and divinity with the Father (John 14:9-11, Heb 1:1-3, Col 1:16).
  • > Jesus humbled Himself to be born of a virgin joining His divinity with our humanity in order to reach sinful man with God’s saving love and grace.
  • > He was tempted in every way just like we are yet lived a perfect sinless life and freely surrendered Himself to death triumphing over evil and sin (Heb 4:15).
  • > Christ rose from the dead and is in heaven directing all the agencies of heaven for our eternal salvation and the final defeat of evil forces.
  • > Every person saved is saved only through Jesus Christ and His victory for mankind.  
  • > The Holy Spirit is Christ’s representative on earth administering all the benefits achieved by Christ to those who trust in God.
  • > Christ will come again, literally, visibly, with His angels to bring His people to Himself, put a final end to sin and sinners and restore this universe back into the eternal harmony of love.
  • > In a literal, physical new heaven and new earth the home of the righteous.
  • > I in a literal, physical resurrection from the dead where those who died in a saving relationship with Christ along with the saved who are alive when He comes will exchange this sick, disease ridden body for a perfect, eternal body no longer subject to pain, suffering and death.
  • > That the time for Christ to come and redeem His saints is imminent.
