Marriage and Renewal of Vows

Many people travel to Phuket to get married in this tropical paradise.  Pastor Dana is glad to assist you in performing the ceremony.  You can get married in our church, on the beach, at any of the resorts in Phuket or Phang Nga.  wedding ceremonies or renewal of vows are performed on the foundation of scripture. Pastor Dana requires the couple have  premarital counseling, done by himself or another pastor or counselor.  At a minimum this will require an online interview and preferably at least one meeting in person before the ceremony or contact with the person who performed premarital counseling.   He will perform weddings for non Christians, however if one party is a Christian and the other is not, then he will not perform the wedding.  This is based on  2 Corinthians 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?"   If you are celebrating your anniversary and wish to renew your vows then short notice is no problem, and no counseling is required.

When a man and woman get married, they stand before witnesses and proclaim their commitment to a lifetime of love. Though the details of the ceremony may differ,  the concept of marriage is the same. There is a desire to know and be known by another human being in total intimacy, and to procreate and raise the next generation. This building of family is God-ordained from the beginning of creation as a lifetime union between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:18, 24). God's plan is designed to enable a man and woman to grow together in a mutually satisfying relationship, and then to reach out to others with the love of Christ.

God lays out a blueprint for marriage in the Bible. It makes sense that the Designer of marriage has the best plan for building it. His clear instructions are::

Marriage should be between a man and a woman. (Genesis 2:18) Eve, a woman, was the "helper" God provided who was suitable (Genesis  2:24). Any other kind of union, God considers "unnatural" and a sin (Romans 1:26-27).

Marriage should be a lifetime union. God is grieved by divorce and the destruction of lives that result (Mark 10:3-12).

Marriage should be mutually beneficial, where both partners look out for the interests of the other in a bond of love (Ephesians 5:33; Philippians 2:3; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

Marriage should be a monogamous and faithful relationship. God hates adultery so much that it is forbidden in the Ten Commandments and warns over and over that it leads to destruction (Exodus 20:14; Proverbs 6:32).

Why is marriage so important to God? Like all things God creates, marriage has a purpose and a provision. The obvious purpose is to establish a safe and healthy environment for intimacy and for the raising of children. God doesn't want us to be lonely, and he wants us to be fruitful in a lasting way (Genesis 2:18; Genesis1 :27-28). A deeper, more spiritual purpose is to reflect the image of God as a unit (Genesis 1:27) and to mirror the beautiful relationship between Jesus and His Bride, The Church. (Ephesians 3:31).

The Bible says, "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their work" (Ecclesiastes 4:9). In a partnership in which the two are working for the same goal-loving God, loving people, and building God's kingdom-their efforts are multiplied in their unity. You can walk in the power and purpose of a godly marriage as you pattern your relationship after the Bible, pray together regularly, and serve together in a local church. God will bless the marriage modeled after His word, and together, the husband and wife will produce much for the kingdom of God!

Verses

"Haven't you read the Scriptures?" Jesus replied. "They record that from the beginning 'God made them male and female.' And He said, 'This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.' Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together" (Matthew 19:4-6).

Pastor Dana is ordained and qualified to perform wedding services for visitors to Phuket or permanent residents.  He will endeavor to make your special day a blessed day. Services are conducted in English.  Bring your marriage license with you from your country of origin so that your wedding will be legally recognized.
