Position on Marriage

With the goal of upholding the integrity of this ministry, serving as a living example to our communities, and proclaiming the authority of God’s Word uncompromisingly, all those who serve in this ministry, in any capacity should live by and agree to the Position on Marriage.

Marriage

 

Man and women originated from one flesh and therefore when they come together their “one flesh” union is restored. This is a sacred event. We have come to know this “coming together” as marriage. Established by God, this covenant exists between one man and one woman and is at the very foundation of a healthy society. We believe this institution mirrors the relationship between God and his people. Just as God’s love is entrenched into the relationship of his people so should the intimacy exist between a husband and wife. This establishment sets the following precedents:

 

Complementary but opposite sexual pairing of sexes – Heterosexuality

Two-member union – Monogamy

Sacrament of male and female union – Marriage

 

Therefore, we hold to the truth that biblical marriage is a heterosexual monogamous covenant.

 

We hold to the Danvers Statement and the Nashville Statement on Marriage, Gender Roles, Manhood, and Womanhood, and Sexuality.

Statement of Faith Who We Are

Marriage Creed

 

I am a covenant keeper. As a covenant keeper, I am in lifelong submission to Christ, which means I will commit myself to a life of learning, humility, and sanctity.

 

As a covenant keeper, I am part of a body of believers, who will help me on this journey, and I will always help others on their journey. We all love each other, bear each other’s burdens, grow together, learn together, and prosper together. No one is more important than the other.

 

As a covenant keeper, I am intentionally committed to upholding the integrity and sanctity of my marriage, and the marriages of others. Others will find me faithful in my devotion to Christ and commitment to maintain purity until marriage or in honor toward singlehood.

 

[Husbands] As a covenant keeping husband, I pledge to demonstrate the lavishness of love, compassion, and extravagance to my wife -that Christ has shown his Church. Together, with my wife, I pledge to submit ourselves to each other according to our Godly designed roles.

 

[Wives] As a covenant keeping wife, I pledge to demonstrate the reverence of respect, submission, and honor to my husband -that the Church has shown Christ. Together, with my husband, I pledge to submit ourselves to each other according to our Godly designed roles.

 

[Men General] I pledge to demonstrate sexual, emotional, and psychological self-control. I pledge to exercise love in all my varying relationships with other women, aiding in their sanctification and affirming their femininity.

 

[Women General] As a covenant keeping woman, I pledge to demonstrate sexual, emotional, and psychological patience. I pledge to exercise respect in all my varying relationships with other men, aiding in their sanctification and affirming their masculinity.

 

As a covenant keeper, I will implement what I have learned, seek help when needed, admit when I am wrong, and prepare myself when called upon to lead. I have been crucified so that I may arise and live in Christ!
