Welcome to Our House!


family churchWe’re the Holley family, and we’re so glad you stopped by!

This is a website designed to educate, inform, challenge and stimulate. We want to share with you how things are, and how we think, in our house.  We took this idea from the Old Testament verse:

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of 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, New King James Version

Our Mission for this blog could be summarized as a two-fold vision (based on the time-tested ministries Family Life and Focus on the Family), plus a bit more:

  • To strengthen the Body of Christ by facilitating the development of Godly marriages and families who change the world one home at a time.
  • To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and the associated Biblical truths worldwide.
  • To enjoy fellowship with other like-minded people, sharing what we have learned, and developing a spirit of true community.
