Grace Church Marriage Policy

Because we want to honor God in all of our relationships, we follow the commands that He gives us for our own good (Deuteronomy 10:13). Here are some principles that are taught in the Bible.

The spiritual perspective of each individual is extremely important in marriage.
The Bible warns against the marriage of a Christian and a non-Christian. “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; see also Ezra 9, and 1 Kings 11:1-10. Because of this teaching, we do not perform weddings for couples where one is a Christian and the other is not.

We ask couples to uphold God’s plan for sexual purity before marriage.
We’ve helped many couples discover the blessings of following God’s plan and are happy to help couples move in this direction. Making a commitment to sexual purity demonstrates your desire to pursue God’s best for your marriage. Your pastor will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Remarriage after divorce is permitted in specific situations.
For detailed information please read our Marriage, Separation, Divorce and Remarriage statement.  If you have been divorced, there is a section for you to fill out on the Confidential Marriage Application; this will be reviewed by the officiating pastor.
