Christian Life Program (CLP)
SYNOPSIS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE PROGRAM (CLP) OF THE COUPLES FOR CHRIST
What is the Christian Life Program (CLP)?
The CLP is an integrated course intended to lead the program participants into a renewed understanding of God’s call to them as Christian couples or individuals. It runs for a total of 8 separate sessions, usually held once a week. Most sessions consist of three basic ingredients: a teaching, a group discussion, and a time for fellowship. Each session would normally last for about 2.5 to 3 hours.
What are the goals of the CLP?
- For the individual, it brings a person into a stronger relationship with God by discovering and living more fully the power and gifts he or she received through the Holy Spirit.
- For the family, it brings married couples to a renewed commitment to Christian family Life and it starts to build up a community of committed Christian families.
- For the Church, it brings people within a particular parish to a fuller experience of life in the Spirit. Consequently, it strengthens and revitalizes community life in the parish.
What is the content of the CLP?

What is the content of each of the above teachings?
The first module of the CLP presents the absolute basics of Chris-tian life. It is basically Christian theology.
The next module presents the kind of life that God calls us to. It spells out the personal response involved in receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior and helps participants to make a reorientation of their lives around Jesus and commit their lives to Him.
We invite you take it one module at a time. Allow the Lord to work in you at each passing week. Be open to the changes that God will make in your life in the course of the program.
