The purpose of the Walnut Street Baptist Church Wedding Ministry is to prepare engaged couples for a lifelong, God-glorifying marriage and to assist in the preparation of the wedding ceremony. We believe that any wedding celebrated here should be a worship service in which the gathered community gives thanks to God for the love which brings two people together, witness their vows, and asks God’s blessings on their life together. In this way, the wedding becomes an act of the whole church. Therefore, the policies set forth by the church, reflect the convictions of Walnut Street Baptist Church about the nature of worship and marriage.
The indissoluble union between Jesus Christ and the church is the biblical model we follow in marriage. When a man and a woman with an authentic love for each other commit themselves in Christian marriage, they come together intending to remain united throughout their lives. It is our hope that persons who come to be married in Walnut Street Baptist Church’s facilities share our convictions and will strive to realize the ideal of a lifelong marriage.
As you read through the policies, we ask that you respect our policies and take them seriously. They have been established in order to preserve an atmosphere of worship and individuality in all marriage ceremonies. If you have any questions regarding the policies, please discuss them with the senior pastor or other staff members.
We wish you every happiness in your life together, and sincerely hope that your wedding in these church facilities will be a sacred and beautiful occasion.
