Welcome future bride and groom!

No doubt, as you begin planning your wedding, this is an exciting time. We are honored that you would consider having your wedding here at Living Faith. We believe that marriage was instituted by God himself. Therefore, it is far more than a ceremony or reception. Ultimately, marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman. Also, we believe it is a sacred vow between the couple and God.

 In light of the importance we place on marriage, and our faith position, the Elders of Living Faith Christian Church have approved the following requirements for any wedding to take place in our facility or to be officiated by one of our Pastors or staff.

Living Faith Christian Church Wedding Requirements:

  • Both the Bride and Groom must give evidence that each has accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord.

  • Either the bride or the groom must demonstrate they have been actively attending Living Faith Christian Church a minimum of six months before submitting any request for a wedding.

  • The Bride and Groom must meet with a Pastor of Living Faith Christian Church a minimum of six months before their wedding and secure his agreement to conduct the ceremony.

  • The couple must complete premarital counseling that is approved by the officiating pastor. If the couple is referred outside for premarital counseling, they will make arrangements with the counselor for payment. Premarital Counseling must begin a minimum of three months before the wedding. In extreme situations, the pastor has the right to modify the three month minimum.

  • We believe God’s Word teaches the value and dignity of all people. Also, we believe God’s Word defines marriage as a sacred union between a man and woman. While we respect the right of any individual, church, or group to hold a different view, this is our biblical position. Therefore, the Pastors and Elders of Living Faith Christian Church have agreed that our Pastor’s services and/or use of our church facilities for weddings is limited to this faith position.

Additional Information:

The church may be reserved once we have received a completed wedding application, the couple has met with one of our pastoral staff for an initial consultation, and there is an agreement to proceed with the wedding. Because of this, we strongly recommend that you finalize your date with the church before you reserve a reception venue. 

 It is not always possible for us to accommodate specific dates in terms of building use, the availability of one of our Pastors, or other staff needed for a wedding. Holidays are especially difficult to schedule since a wedding at LFCC involves pastoral staff, custodial staff, technical staff and a wedding coordinator. Because of this, we generally do not recommend that you plan for a holiday.
Our pastors are happy to perform weddings at various off-site venues. Due to demands on their ministry, the venue must be no more than 15 miles away from Living Faith. If it is further away, we will gladly refer you to a pastor who is serving local to your venue.

Please read the Living Faith Christian Church Wedding Requirements stated above, and be in agreement with them prior to completing the form and scheduling the initial consultation. If you would like to take the next step in discussing having your wedding at Living Faith, or would like one of our pastors to officiate your ceremony, please click on the link below to take the next step in the process. Once we receive your completed form, one of our staff will be in touch with you shortly to discuss an appointment with a Pastor. Please note that all requests for weddings are subject to the availability of our building and of one of our Pastoral staff.

* Please be advised that alcohol and dancing are not options for you to provide on the premises.
