Marriage is truly a beautiful ceremony given to us by God in the very beginning. Genesis 2:24 says, "Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh". At Kimberly Christian Church we believe and hold strongly to the Biblical view of marriage that takes place between one man and one woman. God has set a standard in His word regarding marriage, and as a church that strives to live Biblically, we want to honor that standard.

Marriage, according to scripture, is the joining of one man and one woman as God created them. Human sexuality, as designed by God, is a gift for a man and woman within the bounds of marriage.
