Statement on Christian Marriage

President of NSW & ACT Baptist Churches John Brew asked Baptist Churches to make a statement on Christian Marriage in their services:

(i) Marriage, according to the biblical pattern, is a lifelong and exclusive commitment between a man and a woman, instituted by God for the benefit and enrichment of mankind, and calling for mutual love, faithfulness and understanding.
(ii) It is a Christian responsibility, incumbent upon individuals, churches and this Union, to give high priority to all reasonable means of promoting and strengthening truly Christian marriage and healthy family life (such as biblical instruction, counselling and Marriage Enrichment programmes).

ESM of HCBC and HCBC agree with this statement.
