Marriage is a lifelong, covenantal union between one man and one woman. It is a special and sacred gift from God that he has designed to reflect the unfailing love that Christ has for his people. As a church, we want to help you plan a wedding celebrating your love and bringing glory to God, and establish your marriage on God’s firm foundation.
We’re excited to serve our members and attendees during the process of wedding planning and marriage. We look forward to walking with you in the coming days.
“Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:31-32
