Marriage & Relationship Ministry
At City of Faith Church we blieve that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. From the opening of the Bible in Genesis 2:24 to the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 19:5-6, the definition of marriage is a covenantal union of one man and one woman. We firmly hold to this biblical, historic and widely held understanding of marriage. It is our responsibility to teach this biblical doctrine and to promote strong, healthy, biblical marriages.
At City of Faith we seek to enhance all relationships so that they all might glorify God. We strive to educate, motivate and empower engaged and married couples in understanding how to develop and maintain positive spirit-filled marriages. The Marriage & Relationship Ministry seeks to help couples understand, God's sovereign plan for marriage, the roles of spouses within marriage, and the wonderful blessing marriage can be when both spouses are obedient to God's Word.
According to scripture in Ephesians 5:22-33 and 1 Peter 2:13-3:7, God created marriage to be a sweet picture of the Gospel in action. Marriage is a living parable of Christ's deep, abiding, covenant-keeping, sacrificial love for His church. From Genesis through Revelation, marriage is seen as but a shadow of a far greater reality. Marriage is a statement to the world about the nature and character of God and how He chooses to relate to His people.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up. Again, if two lie together, they are warm; but how can one be warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him." Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
