We believe that marriage is a good gift from a good God, that it is best entered
into by those who enjoy a relationship with God and have a desire to live for
Him. Weddings are the sacred union of a woman and a man in the sight of God
and those we love. It is our hope that every wedding performed at First Baptist
Church is the beginning of a marriage where God is honored and where husband and
wife live together in mutual love and respect for the glory of God.
The first step in reserving a date for your wedding is to schedule an appointment with the Office Manager. This is required whether or not our senior pastor performs the ceremony. You will be given a wedding application form to fill out and a $100 refundable deposit will be required to secure your date. Once the application form is processed, our wedding coordinator will contact you to make necessary arrangements.
