Congratulations to both of you on having made one of the most significant decisions of your lives! While we believe making Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior is the most important life-changing decision you can make, choosing the one with whom you will spend the rest of your life in the sacred covenant of marriage is incredibly significant.
Now that you have chosen to commit yourselves to one another, we encourage you to align your engagement, your marriage and your home with the biblical standards God has created for us.
The Engagement Covenant
Believing that marriage is a holy and sacred gift from God, it is our desire that couples approach marriage in a way that is pleasing to God. Therefore, we ask couples to agree to an “engagement covenant” described below:
- A Covenant of Belief
In believing that the Bible teaches that Christians are to marry only Christians, we require that both bride and groom individually come to an understanding and acceptance of Christ’s sacrificial death. (2 Corinthians 6:14-16; Romans 10:9-10)
- A Covenant of Purity
Believing that the sexual relationship has been designed and intended for marriage, we ask that you agree to abstain from any sexual relationship until after the wedding. Furthermore, believing that living arrangements that include cohabitation prior to the wedding is a compromise of your Christian witness, we ask that you agree to separate living arrangements until the wedding. (1 Tim 4:12)
- A Covenant of Faithfulness
Believing that the Church is God’s Greenhouse to grow strong marriages, we ask that you be involved at Wellspring Church, a part of the Body of Christ, and pursue a lifestyle of faithfulness. (Hebrews 10:19-25)
Once the form is completed we will contact you with further information as well as send what the recommended honorarium for the pastor who will officiate your wedding will be.
