While marriage is a holy covenant between three parties – a man, woman and God – we understand that men and women have a sin nature and that can cause lots of problems in a marriage when both people are not abiding and growing in their walk with Christ. These marriage issues can become very painful and lead to anger, depression, loneliness, bitterness, isolation and brokenness. City of Faith Marital Counseling is prepared to help couples get back on track and find hope, healing and restoration for their marriage. We serve a God who is all about restoration and resurrection. If he can heal and raise people from the dead then he can heal and raise marriages from the dead. He has given us a manual called the Bible that points us to all we need to grow in Christ and in our marriage. Through study, the proper application of the Word, reliance upon the Holy Spirit and engagement in Biblical community, couples can walk in wholeness and have the strong marriage they desire. In our marriage counseling we will encourage you to have mentor partners or advocates as well to help you as a couple apply the counsel given during the counseling sessions.

With the gifting and flavor that is unique to each church family, virtually every gathering at COF commences with a time of focusing our hearts on our Savior through song. Our musical culture is a living organism with roots in tradition (Matt. 26:30) and with the voice that the Lord is cultivating in today's saints (Psalm 96:1). Our musical expression reflects the diverse nature of our church body, but with the singular focus of exalting our Savior, and "addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Eph. 5:19-20).
