COG Statement of Marriage and Family
Cleveland, Tenn.—The Church of God Executive Committee, meeting in session on June 1, 2012, has released the following statement regarding marriage and the family:
“In light of the debate and controversy of recent times regarding the state of marriage, the Church of God chooses to go on record and state unequivocally that we believe that marriage is the sacred union of one man and one woman according to the plan of Almighty God as found in Holy Scripture. “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).”
A resolution on Marriage and Family will be presented to the General Council and the International General Assembly, which meets July 24-27, 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
