Our view of Marriage: We believe that marriage is a sacred union ordained by God joining as one flesh a man and a woman whom He has brought together. We believe that on the day of the wedding, God is a witness to this marriage covenant and becomes a covenant partner with the husband and wife. Everything about an FCC wedding service is designed to witness that this is a Christian wedding. As ministers of the Gospel, we believe that by conducting a marriage ceremony, we, as God’s representatives, are officiating over the creation of this union. Therefore, we believe that we have a responsibility to God and the couple to set certain standards and to become familiar with the intended couple. Because of our view of marriage, we reserve the right to decline to perform any wedding ceremony.
