Thank you for considering Selah Mountain Ministries for your wedding plans. If you are a prospective bride or groom, we want to congratulate you on your engagement as we know that this is one of the most exciting times of your life.
Because our ministry operates from a Biblical perspective, the services we offer for weddings are from a Christ-centered Biblical perspective. The Bible teaches us that God created marriage as a “one flesh” relationship between one man and one woman in Genesis 2:18-24:
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Likewise, Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-6, “4 And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” By these words, Jesus defined marriage as a one-flesh relationship between a man and a woman, which is His standard of a Christ-centered marriage or wedding.
In chapter five of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, we learn that God created this one flesh relationship between a man and a woman to be an earthly model of the relationship of Christ, as the bridegroom, with the Church as His bride. Furthermore, the different roles that the husband and wife have in marriage are an earthly model of the roles of Christ and His Church.
