P：In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.（Matthew28:19b）
P：Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God and before His Church to witness the union of this man and this woman in holy matrimony. This is an honorable estate instituted and blessed by God in Paradise, before humanity’s fall into sin.
In marriage we see a picture of the communion between Christ and His bride, the Church. Our Lord blessed and honored marriage with His presence and first miracle an Cana in Galilee. This estate is also commended to us by the apostle Paul as good and honorable. Therefore, marriage is not to be entered into inadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, deliberately, and in accordance with the purpose for which it was instituted by Gd.
The union of husband and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by God for the mutual companionship, help, and support that each person ought to receive from the other, both in prosperity and adversity. Marriage was also ordained so that man and woman may find delight in one another. Therefore, all persons who marry shall take a spouse in holiness and honor, not in in the passion of lust, for God has not called us to impurity but in holiness. God also established marriage for the procreation of children who are to be brought up in the fear and instruction of the Lord so that they may offer Him their praise.
For these reasons God has established the holy estate that ______and ______wish to enter. They desire our prayers as they begin their marriage in the Lord’s name and with His blessing.
If this wedding rite is being used as an independent service, the following or other appropriate passages from Holy Scripture are now read: Genesis2:7, 18-24 or 1:26-28; Ephesians5:1-2, 22-33; and matthew19:4-6 or Mark10:1-9. A sermon is also preached. A hymn may precede or follow. The wedding party may be seated throughout.如果本婚礼仪式作为独立崇拜程序，现在开始宣读以下或其他相关的圣经经文：创世记2:7,18-24或1:26-28；以弗所书4:1-2,22-33；以及马太福音19:4-6或马可福音10:1-9。证道开始。证道之前或之后可唱一首赞美诗。在整个过程中，新人可在会众中始终安坐。
If the wedding party has been seated, they now stand and take their places before the chancel steps。 如果新人一直安坐，现在，他们要起来，站到圣坛的台阶前。

P：______，will you have this woman to be your wedded wife, to live together in the holy estate of matrimony as God ordained it? Will you nourish and cherish her as Christ loved His body, the Church, giving Himself up for her?
