"And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love.
But the greatest of these is Love."
- 1 Cor 13:13
Faithful to the teaching of Jesus Christ, we believe that marriage is:
Marriage mirrors the faithful love of God for his people. At your wedding you will make a commitment to love each other for better or worse, in sickness and in health. Thus the decision you make to marry is a very important one, because it is a life-long commitment. The preparation, the forms to complete and the ceremony all assist the couple to prepare for and appreciate what it is they are doing. With God's grace, their bond of love is blessed and strengthened.
