Morningside Baptist believes in the biblical definition of marriage. Scripture teaches in Genesis 1:27 that God created the first two human beings as male and female, designing them to complete one another and intending their sacred union as the means of procreation for the human race. We believe that marriage is the exclusive union of a man and a woman in covenant with one another and with God for life (Genesis 2:24). We reserve the right to abide by these biblical convictions as a matter of obedience to Almighty God and in the exercise of our religious liberty guaranteed us in the United States Constitution.
