					                    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
      Church?




   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?

              Bride:        ____________________________

              Groom:        ____________________________

   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.




   8. Is the use/abuse of alcohol or substance an issue or concern for either
      yourself or your fiancé? If so, describe how you and your fiancé’ are
      dealing with the concerns.




   9. List what you see as your fiancé’s three greatest strengths? Three greatest
      weaknesses?




   10. Is there any other information to share that may make your assessment
       interview more beneficial?




I have completed this questionnaire thoroughly and accurately and I realize that
the ministerial staff member will want to have follow-up discussions about many
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.
