REGULAR ATTENDEES OF NEW HOPE
We are committed to serving those who are members or regular attendees of New Hope for at least four months.
A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD
A Christian is one who has come to know Jesus Christ as his/her personal Savior, and is committed to living in accordance with Scriptural principles (i.e. maintaining sexual purity, living in a separate residence from your future spouse, seeking a partner of the opposite sex with the same spiritual commitment).
BEFORE SETTING YOUR WEDDING DATE
A minimum of 4 months is needed to complete the marriage preparation process. This should allow enough time to complete the material, interview, and participate in the required premarital coaching sessions. The marriage preparation process should begin as the couple seriously considers marriage. More than 4 months may be needed to work through and process issues that may arise during the marriage preparation process.
PARTICIPATE IN THE PRE-MARITAL PREPARATION PROCESS AND MENTORING
This process is designed to help a couple evaluate and strengthen their relationship using sound Biblical and psychological truths. Biblical roles, communication, intimacy, sexuality, financial principles, and other topics are addressed in an understandable and practical style.
