Receipt and Acknowledgment

The key to our definition is the Biblical understanding of marriage, a lawful union between a man and a woman. This definition does not include those who are not legally married or whom society defines as domestic partners. Our definition also does not include those that engage in moral misconduct such as promiscuity, homosexual behavior and/or sexual orientation, bisexuality, polygamy, transgender identity or any other violation of the unique roles of male and female set forth in scripture.
