Please Note

No activity on church property may contradict the purpose or doctrine of Bent Tree —whether the activity has an overt religious purpose (preaching, worship services, Bible instruction, communion, baptism, weddings, funerals) or an implied religious purpose (social service, community service, mentorship, benevolence, charity, schools). In addition, church property is exclusively reserved for persons and organizations whom acknowledge and adhere to Bent Tree’s Statement of Faith and position on marriage.

Bent Tree’s position on marriage affirms the biblical understanding of marriage as a sacred covenant between one man (created by God and born as a man) and one woman (created by God and born as a woman). This conviction shapes all Bent Tree practices including weddings hosted at the church.
