Wedding Policy

The leadership of Redeeming Grace recognizes the significance of the marriage covenant. The Bible teaches that the marriage covenant is holy and sacred. The union of a man and a woman in marriage is illustrative of the union which exists between Christ and His bride, the church (Ephesians 5:21-33).

In a wedding ceremony it is Christ, and not the bride or groom, who is to be the focus of attention. With this being said, it is incumbent upon the leadership of Redeeming Grace to diligently guard the sacredness of any marriage ceremony which takes place on the property that God has given to us.

Therefore, Redeeming Grace Baptist Church only allows their grounds to be used for a wedding ceremony of an active church member who is demonstrating the fruit of salvation in his or her life as discerned by the elders. An active church member is a person who attends at least fifty percent of the Sunday morning worship services. Any extenuating circumstances, such as health and work schedule, will be evaluated on a case by case basis by the elders of Redeeming Grace.

Furthermore, an elder from Redeeming Grace must officiate the wedding ceremony.
*The same policy holds true for any member of Iglesia. Iglesia’s pastor must officiate any wedding ceremony at Redeeming Grace for an active member of Iglesia.
