Marriage was designed by God
Marriage was designed by God to be a picture of Christ’s love for the church and our honor and submission to Him. The Apostle Paul taught this important principle in Ephesians 5. But we also learn in Colossians 3:17 that our life’s purpose is bring glory to God in our words, in our actions, in Everything! You will not find a verse in Scripture where God tells you to do whatever it takes so you can to be happy and fulfilled as an individual.
First Baptist Church is a place where we seek to honor God’s purposes for marriage and we want to help you too. Contact the church office (812-635-9200) if you want to get biblical counsel or visit www.fbcprinceton.net/counseling for more information.
