“The love of a wife to her husband may begin from the supply of her necessities, but afterwards she may love him also for the sweetness of his person; so the soul first loves Christ for salvation but when she is brought to Him and finds what sweetness there is in Him then she loves Him for Himself.” —RICHARD SIBBES (1577-1635)
Theologian and Lecturer at Holy Trinity, Cambridge, 1610-1615

Serving, Obedient, Loving

The sacrament of marriage were created by God, therefore we follow the blueprint God has provided for us—the bible. The purpose of SOLID Couples is to strengthen, encourage, empower and support marriages following biblical teachings and principles for our guide.

Genesis 2:24 reveals God’s design for marriages. Marriage is intended from the beginning as a lifelong covenant relationship between a man and a woman. Marriage tests Christian character in the areas of sacrificial love, respect, submission, forgiveness, and perseverance. Living together in unity requires couples to embrace biblical means of resolving conflict and demonstrate Christian love. Marriage strives to model Christ's relationship to His church, requiring both partners to mature their Christian character as they encounter opportunities to demonstrate that character in their marriage relationship, which ultimately allows them to fulfill God's intended purpose for their union. Both husband and wife must pursue love as defined in Ephesians 5:25-30, a sacrificial, purifying, and steadfast love.

When the husband and wife surrender their lives to Christ and to one another, then the marriage relationship experiences oneness and God blesses the marriage. Psalm 84:11 tells us that God will give blessings and glory (eternal) when the husband and wife lead an upright Christ-centered life.

Our Vision

To inspire all marriages and couples to love one another as Christ loves us and encourage a spirit of unity, servant-hood, truth and forgiveness through an in-depth study and knowledge of the word of God.

Our Mission
