CFC Guam is an integral part of worldwide CFC family, a global network of CFC groups acting within the framework of the overall CFC vision and mission. It shares the same basic mission throughout the world. Its task is to serve the Lord basically in three areas: evangelization, family life renewal, and total Christian liberation.
CFC Guam decides on its own specific plans and strategies which to carry out the CFC mission, but always in line with CFC's global direction and thrusts. CFC Guam is guided by the following principles: unity and uniformity, interdependence, and accountability.
COUPLES FOR CHRIST throughout the world is one body, one family, one army. It is to have one vision and one mission. It is one united work of the Holy Spirit. It is to live out one culture, the Christian culture that transcends national, racial and social differences.
CFC Guam is to be distinguishable in any part of the world by any member. This is accomplished by uniformity in the most important elements that make a group a part of the worldwide CFC family.
CFC Guam being part global network of CFC groups in different countries, acts within the framework of the overall CFC vision and mission.
CFC Guam is accountable to the Lord for its life and service, and as a concrete and practical expression of this, is accountable to the CFC International Council for the conduct of its life and work, while preserving always the rights of the local Ordinary.
