We are credentialed Christian ministers legally ordained by nondenominational
Christian organizations and ministries and have been offering our services to do
weddings since 2005 for couples in the Memphis/Shelby County & Tipton County, TN
areas who have no church home, may not attend church regularly and others whose
pastor or minister will not marry them.
Some pastors will not do weddings for couples who have been divorced, are of different
faiths or may be living together. We have no such restrictions and our only requirement
is that you agree to our ceremony which is Christian. We never judge or ask about your
Our ceremonies have included couples who have lived together for many years,
expectant parents, couples who are already parents together, military personnel, the
divorced and widowed, renewal vows and of course, men and women who simply love
each other and want to commit to each other in God's Holy Ordinance of Marriage.
Our "Statement of Belief" is as follows: As Christian ministers, we believe in the Biblical
definition of marriage as between a man and a woman as spoken by our Lord Jesus in
Matthew 19:4-6; therefore we will not perform same sex marriages. We base this
refusal on our First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom.
The Bible - Matthew 19: 4-6
4. "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male
5. and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be
joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?
6. So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined
together let not man separate."
