Congratulations on your upcoming marriage. We look forward to serving you as you prepare for this very special occasion. We believe God established the union of marriage to be a sacred life-long covenant. We offer pre-marital counseling and tools as a part of our commitment to the success of your marriage.
The Covenant of Marriage
We believe God established the union of marriage between a man and a woman to be a sacred, life-long covenant. God gives a wife to a husband and a husband to a wife, and they are to receive one another as God’s unique and personal gift. (Genesis 2:18: Genesis 2:22-24)
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
At the deepest level, Christian marriage is a covenant of faith and the closest human relationship possible. Jesus is intentionally invited to be a witness to your covenant of love and should remain at the center of your relationship as you grow in your love for one another over a lifetime.
