We believe that marriage is sanctioned by God. which joins one man and one women in a single, exclusive, covenantal union as described in Scripture. We believe God intends sexual intimacy to occur between a man and a women who are married. We believe that God has commanded No sexual intimacy be engaged outside of marriage between a man and a women. Scriptures affirm intimate sexual activity between married heterosexual partners. The teaching of the creation narratives (Genesis1-2) is clear that God created humankind as male and female in the image of God in order to reflect the glory of God to the rest of creation (Genesis 1:26-27). In the Gospels, Jesus affirms this creation purpose by citing the creation narratives in His dispute with the Pharisees over the nature and purpose of marriage (Matthew 19:5: Mark10:7-8).
