New Life Bible Marriage Enrichment Ministry

"2014 Fall Couples Social"

Our mission is to provide opportunities for Christian married couples at NLBC to enrich their marriages based on the word of God and to be conformed to His Image in their marriages by the Power of the Holy Spirit.

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;  22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.  23And 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.  24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.   Genesis 2:21-25 

Marriage is God's idea. From the beginning God established marriage as a permanent relationship, the union of two separate people - a man and a woman- into "one flesh".   For "one flesh" to occur, we must leave & cleave. To leave means sever one relationship before establishing another. This does not mean to disregard your parents, but it does require that you break the tie with your parents and assume responsibility for your spouse.  Cleave means to weld (to join; to fuse; to bond; to link) together. When a man cleaves to his wife they become one flesh. "One Flesh" is a total commitment to intimacy in all of life together, symbolized by the sexual union.

It only takes a few minutes to get married, but building a marriage requires a lifetime commitment.
