God’s Purpose

The work of the New Evangelization is to meet Christ, to live Christ, and to share Christ. This is the very purpose God had in creating us. It is through how we relate to God that we are able to meet this purpose.

To meet Christ is to know God: Jesus says that He and the Father are one (Jn 10:30). Jesus says that if we see Him then we have seen the Father (Jn 14:9b). As we encounter Christ in our daily lives and enter into a deeper relationship with Him, we experience the relationship that God wants from us, that of a Father and His children.

To live Christ is to love God: As we strive to follow in the footsteps of our Saviour, to be perfect children of God through following His example, we begin to manifest our love for God.

To share Christ is to serve God: To share Christ is to make known to mankind the gift of salvation in the work of the cross, so that they may receive and believe in Jesus. Thus we are fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives, by bringing His children to live with Him eternally.

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
