Marriage

The Scripture teaches that God instituted marriage as an earthly

The Scripture teaches that God instituted marriage as an earthly picture of Christ’s relationship with the church (Ephesians 5:22–32) and that God created marriage to be the foundation of a strong church and stable society. It was His intent that the marriage covenant should be between a man and a woman for a lifetime. God never intended for the marriage relationship to function without His involvement. As such, we believe that the most successful marriages are Christ-centered and where each spouse is submitted to God and His Word. We believe every couple needs the full measure of God's grace in their relationship, as well as training and relational encouragement, to have a successful, lifelong marriage.
