"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall
love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and
with all your strength. And these words which I command you today
shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children,
and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by
the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them
as a sign on your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write
them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (Deuteronomy
It is our desire at Berean that the Lord would impart a godly
vision to every head of home for the holy practice of family worship.
We do not have to wait until the Lord's Day to hear the Holy Scriptures
read, to pray to God, and to sing His praise with holy songs of joy.
We who are in Christ have been given the privilege of communing with
God through Christ every day in private worship, but we also have
this privilege as families.
Our hope is that God the Holy Spirit would make each of our homes
havens where the Triune God is continually adored and magnified. In
family worship we read the Holy Scriptures to our children "...which
are able to make them wise for salvation through faith which is
in Christ Jesus" (II Tim. 3:15). We commend the supplementary
use of a child's catechism or The Shorter Catechism (Baptist Version)
to further instruct our families in sound doctrine. Furthermore, no
Christian husband or father should miss the joy of singing praise
to God with his wife and children with psalms, hymns, and spiritual
songs. Finally, family worship concludes as we join our hearts in
fervent and effectual prayer with our family members. The value of
this discipline cannot be overestimated, and we believe it is a vital
part of strengthening our homes and families.
