Premarital Wedding Questionnaire
Please answer all of the following questions to help assist our ministerial staff
member with the pre-marital assessment interview. When your completed
questionnaire and wedding reservation form have been received in the office,
you will be contacted by our church office to schedule your interview.
After the Biblical basis for the marriage is determined and the pre-marital
assessment interview is completed, you can proceed with reserving a date for
your wedding on the church calendar.
1. Why are you interested in having your wedding ceremony at First Baptist
2. Describe your current spiritual status. Please share your testimonies on
separate sheets of paper. (Bride and Groom)
3. Where is your current Church Membership?
4. How long have you been engaged?
5. Do your immediate family members (parents, siblings, children) give their
full support to your intentions to marry? Share some of the ways they are
showing or voicing their support?
6. Have either of you been previously married? If so, how long has the
divorce been final? Would you be willing to share some of the
circumstances surrounding the divorce? (Do so on separate sheet)
7. Are you and your fiancé’ currently, or have you ever been, living
together? The Assessment Interview will involve discussions with all
couples about the importance of achieving and/or maintaining sexual
purity before marriage.

yourself or your fiancé? If so, describe how you and your fiancé’ are

of these questions.

First Baptist Church affirms that the Bible is the fully inspired Word of God, and the final authority in all matters. The
Bible affirms that marriage is the first institution created by God for man and provides specific instruction as to its
nature and requirements of conduct. Therefore, we encourage all couples seeking to be married to consult God and His
word regarding their union. In submitting to the Bible as God’s Word, First Baptist Church reserves the right to deny
use of its facilities to any couple that openly rejects by statement or conduct the teachings of God in the Bible regarding
salvation, marriage or Christian living.
