Marriage is an all-important institution from whence families and clans are born; and nations and generations are developed. It was commended by St. Paul to be entered into with godly reverence, not precipitously, but with godly fear by all men. The institution is sacred before the Lord and it is therefore incumbent on all men that it is entered into in faith.
A wedding is one of the most important days in a person’s life. It was honored by the Lord Jesus Christ, as the very first of his miracles took place at the wedding feast of Canaan in Galilee. It is our desire at House On The Rock to help in making your wedding day a memorable one and your marriage enjoyable and not endurable.
