Excerpt


The majority of people that get married in church, will have little or no knowledge of the Christian faith. Preparing for Marriage is to help churches which are preparing couples for marriage, get on with one of our primary tasks - teaching the gospel to those who are lost without Christ. While not ignoring practical aspects of marriage,the study seeks to explain the gospel as the model for marriage. It also seeks to show that a relationship with God through faith in Christ is the very best basis on which to build a life. It is structured in four parts, and can be run in a variety of settings by pastors and lay people.
