Welcome

Kia ora! Welcome to Couples for Christ (CFC) in Wellington, New Zealand.

CFC is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life.

Members commit themselves to the Lord and to one another so that they may grow in maturity as men and women of God. Couples fulfil their primary vocation of raising their family under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God.

Couples for Christ nurtures Christian couples and establishes families committed to the work of evangelization, winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

CFC grows mainly through the establishment of localized units in different parishes.

Since its establishment in 1981, CFC is now present in 163 countries.

2018 Theme

Rekindle the gift… fulfill your Ministry!

The theme is taken from the second letter of Paul to Timothy, but is particularly anchored on the following verses:

“For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands.” (2 Timothy 1:6, New Standard Revised Version)

“Solemn Charge. I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power: proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching. For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths. But you, be self-possessed in all circumstances; put up with hardship; perform the work of an evangelist; fulfill your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:1-5 New American Bible Revised Edition)
