We have been performing Christian wedding ceremonies
since 2005 for couples in the Memphis/Shelby County,TN
area who have no church home and others who have no
pastor or minister to call upon for their ceremony.
These range from an elopement or simple exchange of vows
to informal and formal services in private homes, parks, lovely
decorated backyards, gazebos, a riverboat and chapels.
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-ordained 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."
