Charter on the Family

Whereas that there is one God, origin and creator of the universe, who has within Himself the characteristics of masculinity and femininity and is the universal parent who unconditionally loves all men as His children.

Whereas that every human life is born of the love of a father and a mother.
Whereas that human beings exist as men and women, they have equal value and are in the image of their Creator.

Whereas that human life contains both spiritual and physical aspects, and that a vision that includes both realities is necessary to develop real human nature in an appropriate way.

Whereas that life on earth is meant to be a school of heart and love to prepare us for eternal life, and death can be compared to a second birth.

Whereas that, as described in various Sacred Scriptures (e.g., Genesis 1:27: “Be fruitful, multiply, and dominate the earth”) human beings pursue three goals

  • Developing one’s character as an individual
  • Development of the ability to love through the relationship between husband and wife, parents and children, brothers and sisters, thus forming a family centred on the love of God.
  • Development of the capacity to administer creation, using our creativity to take care of it and develop it for the benefit of all.

Whereas the pursuit of these life objectives by humanity has been the guiding purpose of human history and the central purpose of all religions,

FFWPU states that:
the family plays a vital role in human development;

The natural family is not just a social convention, but an important goal of a universally shared life;

Marital love between man and woman, lived as an expression of God’s Love, is the basis of joy and personal development and of the couple, and the best environment for children, from conception to childhood and adulthood;

The family is also an essential training ground for building peaceful and sustainable communities, and ultimately a peaceful and united society and world.
