Crossroad Church is committed to building strong marriages; therefore, we want to do everything possible to help a man and a woman develop a solid foundation from the very beginning of their marriage covenant. Weddings occur on a spectrum with a civil ceremony at one end and a spiritual ceremony for the marriage covenant at the other end. We view the agreement to perform a marriage covenant ceremony to be more of a partnership than a one-time event. Our responsibility in this partnership is to provide tools for building a strong marriage and to give clear direction concerning the Scriptural guidelines that God has established for marriage.
Marriage is a gift that God has given us. Jesus has given us basic principles and guidelines that will help each couple experience joy and fulfillment in marriage. Application of these principles will help each couple have a wonderful wedding experience and increase the potential for a strong and growing marriage. Accordingly, the following requirements for any man and woman desiring to be married by a Crossroads Pastor or at a Crossroads facility have been established.
