We are passionate for marriages at New Life Fellowship Church. We believe that marriage between one male and one female is a covenantal relationship that points to our ultimate marriage between Christ and His bride, the church. God’s intention is that, at the heart of our spiritual formation, we seek to be equipped to love as He loves – freely, totally, faithfully and fruitfully. We affirm that “The union of man and woman builds and shapes families, families shape neighborhoods, neighborhoods shape communities, communities shape cities, cities shape states, states shape nations, nations shape world. When the marital union breaks down, eventually so does everything resting on it” (John Paul II).
New Life Fellowship desires to build high-quality marriages in our multicultural context through educational workshops & seminars, mentoring, resources, retreats, and small groups. We aim to transform marriages that impact families for generations. We do this through equipping couples, through the integration of Scripture and emotionally healthy skills, to experience God’s design for a purposeful, joyful and intimate marriage.
Through our premarital process we desire to give you the most valuable wedding present we can: a loving, lasting investment in your relationship as you prepare to make a lifelong commitment to one another. It is a very exciting time of thinking about and planning for the big wedding day but we also want you to begin preparing for your marriage which will last a lifetime.
We offer premarital counseling for engaged couples. Additionally, we hold a PreMarital Seminar in January every year. The seminar covers topics such as family of origin, speaking and listening, conflict resolution, roles and expectations, and sexual intimacy. This seminar is a requirement for those hoping to be married by a New Life Fellowship officiant.
