Couples of Christ (cfc)

The Couples for Christ (CFC) is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. Members have committed themselves to the Lord and to one another so they may grow in maturity as men and women of God and fulfill their primary vocation of raising up families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has granted Couples for Christ recognition as a "private association for the lay faithful" in accordance with Canons 321-329 of the Code of Canon Law. Furthermore, CFC operates under the auspices of the Family Life and/or Evangelization Offices of parishes and dioceses throughout the world.

Couples for Christ intends to carry out its work and its mission by focusing on three specific objectives:

  • Individual renewal :
    Before one can consider the whole family, the husband and wife first need to renew their commitment to God. CFC takes the basic message of Christianity and proclaims it anew so that those who hear it can make a renewed commitment to God in a way that will allow them to receive a fuller experience of the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
  • Family renewal:
    As couples renew their commitment to God, they also renew their commitment to one another and to their Christian family life. Gradually, the new life that they find in the Lord filters through all their family relationships.
  • Church renewal:
    As families are renewed, they form a network of committed Christian families who not only support one another but also strengthen the church of which they are members.
