Sermons / What are keys to a successful marriage?

  • Healthy expectations of what marriage is.

  • A realistic concept of what love is.

  • A positive attitude and outlook toward life.

  • The ability to communicate their feelings.

  • An understanding and acceptance of their differences.

  • The ability to make decisions/settle arguments together.

  • Developing a common spiritual foundation and goal.

Marriage does not have to be a struggle. Living happily ever after does not have to be a fairy tale. Although marriage life will always have its difficulties, you can improve your marriage life with certain life skills. The problems of marriage usually develop because of the poor abilities to deal with issues of communication, gender issues, and spiritual differences. In contemplating marriage it is important to involve a commitment to enhancing these skills from the outset.

Part of the requirement for marriage here at North Bay Community Church than is to meet with your pastor for three (3) one hour sessions that will be aimed at not whether you should get married but at developing the skills needed to stay married. God has brought you together in a special love. Take the time to develop how you can keep that love forever.

Call the church office (796-0071) to set up an appointment.
