Every growing church is a marriage-building church. That’s the secret behind the growth of Koinonia Christian Church in Arlington, Texas, a church that exploded from a five-person Bible study a decade ago to a congregation of more than 4,000 members today.
“When you become a marriage-building church, you create an inductive atmosphere where people will want to come because they know something great will happen in their relationships,” says Jimmy Evans of Marriage Today, who partners with Koinonia pastor Dr. Ronnie Goines. “According to Ephesians 5:32 a solid understanding of marriage is somehow amalgamated with a solid understanding of Christ,” Goines adds.
“So I started to teach the men that they are to be the pastors of their homes; all else follows out of that.”
