…at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.‘ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. ‘So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. – Mark 10:6-8

GOD’S BEST FOR YOUR MARRIAGE
At Cornerstone Friends Church we are not in the wedding business… we are in the MARRIAGE business. We place a strong emphasis on healthy, Christ-centered marriages throughout the teaching at Cornerstone. Considering our commitment to existing marriages it should come as no surprise that we care very deeply about preparation for future marriages.
We hold a Biblical view of marriage. Our understanding of Scripture is that marriage is sacred and should be entered into with adequate preparation. The high divorce rate in our country indicates that many people don’t place as high a value on this commitment as God does. It is our desire to help you prepare both emotionally and spiritually as this next chapter of your life is written.
Building a strong, faithful and Christ-centered home may be difficult, but by adequately preparing for the days ahead, you can be counted among the faithful couples who live a long and fulfilled life together within the will of God. We would like to partner with you to help make this happen.
Because the participants in a wedding ceremony make vows before God a certain level of accountability is necessary. If, over the course of the pre-marriage class or pastoral counseling the couple exhibits the inability or unwillingness to achieve the spiritual expectations, the pastor and elder body may choose not to participate in the wedding ceremony as planned.
