The Emmerlings:  Seeking to Make Much of Jesus as a Family

Our Family Vision

The purpose of the William Emmerling, Jr. Family
is to glorify God and fully enjoy him forever,
from generation to generation. 
As
followers of the Messiah Jesus,
we seek to advance his kingdom, his purposes,
as he instructs through His Word
and the direction of the Holy Spirit
in all areas of our lives.
 

How do we flesh this out?

Each member of the family has a personal relationship with their Creator and Savior.
We treat others with respect and honor because they, too, are made in the image of God.
We recognize that family relationships are illustrative of heavenly relationships
The husband and wife are to be unified, as Christ and the Church.  Both have an equal standing with/before God;  however, the husband is responsible before God; leading his family as Christ leads the Church.
Father/child relationship is also illustrative of the relationship Jesus has with the Father, which he has also made available to us.

What
Motivates Us?

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD,
choose this day whom you will serve,
whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River,
or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.“
Joshua 24:15 ESV
