What We Believe about Marriage

Marriage is a gift from God in which a man and a woman come together as husband and wife to enjoy a new identity, a new unity with one another in a relationship characterized by unconditional love, faithfulness, and permanence. This marriage relationship is meant to be a reflection of God himself whose very triune nature is expressed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. But marriage is not merely a relationship; a couple is called together to fulfill their God given mission.

There are no perfect marriages. There are only marriages in which two imperfect people refuse to give up on each other. A willingness to grow and change together will cultivate a deeper marriage relationship. Understanding this, the best thing that a couple can give each other is a transforming relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
