  1. How does this program help move people through the process.
    • The LoveLinks Marriage Ministry fits into the Servanthood process at the Metropolitan Church of Christ. (Heb 12:28)
    • BUILD UP by teaching and modeling the godly purpose of marriage and the biblical roles of husbands and wives. (1 Peter 3:1-10)
    • Married couples are first and foremost stewards of one another  (Eph. 5:21-35). Husbands and wives are given one another for the betterment of the other person.
    • The servanthood level ministries are called to mission and ministry. They are to seek diligently to seek and serve others in their specific focus area. (Luke 19:10;Mathew 20:28)
    • Married couples often need to be saved from sin. Prov. 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin IS a reproach to any people.” LoveLinks must CALL married couples into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ through Faith, Repentance, and Baptism.
    • Married couples need to grow with themselves and others. The Love Links Marriage Ministry offers opportunities for married couples to serve and to be served. (1 Peter 4:10-11)
