ORIENATION SESSION:
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE PROGRAM 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 under-
standing of God’s call to them as Christian couples. It runs for a total of 12 separate ses¬sions,
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 1/2 hours.

What are the goals of the CLP?

1. 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.

2. For the family, it brings married couples to a renewed commit¬ment to Christian family life and
it starts to build up a commu¬nity of committed Christian families.
3. 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?

The CLP runs for a total of 12 consecutive sessions usually held weekly, divided 3 modules of 4
sessions each. The topics of the 12 sessions are:

Module No. 1: THE BASIC TRUTHS ABOUT CHRISTIANITY

1. God’s Love
2. Who is Jesus Christ?
3. What it means to be a Christian
4. Repentance and Faith

Module No. 2: THE AUTHENTIC CHRISTIAN LIFE

5. The Christian Ideal: Loving God


6. Loving Your Neighbor
7. The Christian Family
8. Life in the Holy Spirit

Module No. 3: LIVING A SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIAN LIFE

9. Receiving the Power of the Holy Spirit


10. Growing in the Spirit
11. The Life and Mission of the Couples for Christ
12. Transformation in Christ

The first four talks form the first module of the CLP, and present the absolute basics of Chris-tian life.
It is basically Christian theology. The next module, consisting of another four ses-sions, 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 couples to make a reorientation of their lives around Jesus. The third and final
module helps the couples to commit their lives in a serious way to Jesus Christ.

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.
