Couples’

In a world where “Marriage” is viewed as simple as trading one car for another, the Couples’ Ministry is striving to reach new heights. Keeping the “order” that God has set: God, Family, and Church, the ministry encourages couples to stay in the Word, Pray without ceasing, and devote your marriage to Christ by standing in His principles and living a life which exemplifies Him in all manner. There is a happiness, sweet peace, and love beyond understanding that exist for all marriages under God’s Holy Ordinance. Through seminars, workshops, and other activities, couples are educated on various topics, all of which are designed to confirm, improve, and take your marriage to the “next level.” Marriage is a life-long investment that requires work, time, and all effort; with Christ as our guide, failure is no longer a part of our “spiritual” vocabulary.
