Marriage Enrichment Program
How happy and healthy would you consider your marriage to be? Would your spouse rate it the same?
For many couples, life events and transitions can potentially distance marital relationships over time. In addition, familiarity with your spouse can lead you to take him or her for granted. Unless you are intentional, the health of your marriage will be left to the ebb and flow of life stressors and events.
It is wise to remember one of your most vital ministries begins at home. The health of your marriage influences other relationships such as the relationship with your children as well as with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A strong, happy relationship between parents can lead to positive spiritual, physical, educational, mental and relational adjustment in children.
Aside from the scriptural principles we are called to apply in marriage, a strong and mutually satisfying marriage can have multiple life benefits such as:
- positive health and well-being.
- resilience toward the negative effects of life stresses.
- better coping with major illness.
- overall greater life satisfaction.
From time to time, it is beneficial to have a “marital tune-up” to identify areas that need attention as well as rejoice in the areas that are going well. ACCFS has developed a program for the sole purpose of enriching your marital relationship. Click for an outline of the Marriage Enrichment Program.

Keys To A Healthy Marriage
This comprehensive 10-lesson Bible study was developed by ACCFS. We have been given some powerful principles in God’s Word which can be applied to each marriage to encourage it on the path toward health. In addition to some text followed by questions, each lesson includes an exercise for each couple to complete privately. Copies of this study can be purchased from the Apostolic Christian Book Store.
