American Family Services is steady in its resolve to make a difference in the struggle to protect the family unit... On that Basic element, society as we know it will either stand or fall. To quote Pat Robertson, a Christian TV personality...

"The security of our nation does not depend on how many weapons we have stockpiled, or how much wealth we have in reserve, but how strong is the family."

Mission statement

To aid families before they reach a crisis.

To provide help and bring PURE HOPE to couples in strengthening and preserving the family unit... empowering them to be all that God intended.

To promote and sustain healthy marriages and strong families through conducting...

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

We believe in the traditional heterosexual marriage relationship as set forth in Scripture.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
