WEDDINGS
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Matthew 19:4-6

Marriage is a gift of God. All who invite God into the heart of their marriage will be richly blessed as you enter this gift of marriage according to God’s wise and wonderful plan. Marriage is intended by God to be the most sacred and intimate relationship between a man and a woman, a reflection of God’s relationship with His people through His Son, Jesus Christ. Marriage has potential for both joy and misery. We want to do everything possible to assist you in beginning a marriage that will be one of lifelong fruitfulness and growth together. We require four meetings over at least four months in preparation for your marriage.  Please call the Church Office to request a Wedding Application.  After we receive your application, Pastor David will call you to set up Pre-Marital Preparation sessions, and we'll reserve dates for your ceremony.
Bullet Christian View of Marriage
Marriage is created by God, blessed by Jesus Christ as a covenant lifelong relationship between one man and one woman, representing God’s covenant love between Christ and the Church. The Covenant of Marriage includes sacred vows that express a couple’s commitment before God and witnesses to love one another and be faithful to one another for life. Cannon Beach Community Church welcomes all who seek to enter the Covenant of Marriage as defined by Holy Scripture and blessed by God.
bullet Bible Passages on Marriage

Marriage is designed by God.


  • "The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’ Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man" (Genesis 2:18,22).
  • “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? (Matthew 19:4-5)

Marriage is a lifelong covenant commitment.


  • "The LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth…She is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant" (Mal. 2:14).
  • "Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate" (Matthew 19:6).
  • "By law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress." (Romans 7:2-3).

Marriage is an intimate union of body, heart and spirit.


  • "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked and they felt no shame" (Genesis 2:24-25).
  • "Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth" (Malachi 2:15-16).
  • "The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife" (1 Corinthians 7:4).

Marriage is a union of mutual love and faithfulness.


  • "Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her" (Ephesians 5:21).
  • "Serve one another in love" (Galatians 5:13).
  • "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for one another" (1 John 3:16).
  • "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity" (Colossians 3:12-14).
  • "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure.” (Hebrews 13:4)
