Marriage is a gift from God. Before sin entered the world, God made man and woman in his image, biologically gendered to reflect his glory. Before sin, God ordained the institution of marriage between his image bearers. Therefore, we believe a biblical marriage to be the union of a biologically gendered godly man and a biologically gendered godly woman, bound together in covenant love and commitment. Their covenant promises to each other create a new family, and their bond of love is intended to be nourished in the context of the church, God’s family.
We want your marriage to be a healthy, vibrant reflection of Jesus and the church that lasts a lifetime.
The Bible additionally teaches that marriage is not a manmade, contractual relationship that can be entered into or disposed of whenever we want. In Scripture, marriage is a sacred and lifelong relationship that shows us something about God’s perfect love for us. In Ephesians 5.22-33, the Apostle Paul says that marriage should be like the marriage of Christ and his church. Here are a few ways you and your spouse can help guard your marriage, so you’re honoring one another and God.
Our goal is to inspire, empower, and equip the church to help us all build stronger marriages, stronger families, and stronger communities for the glory of God. Within our community of grace, couples can find pre-marital counseling to support systems along the journey as each marriage weathers various life storms.
