“Our Wedding Vows”
By Nick and Allison
October 5, 2003

I, Nick, receive you, Allison as my wife. Having been chosen by God to be your husband, I commit to love you faithfully, passionately, and self-sacrificially just as Christ has loved us, with all humility and tenderness. I resolve to be a man of God’s word with holy affections, and to devote myself to prayer and fasting on your behalf. I dedicate my life to leading us under the lordship of Christ, in a manner worthy of the calling we have received.

I promise to be your best friend. I promise to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger. I promise to laugh with you in times of joy. I promise to comfort you, hold you, and dry your tears when trials come. I promise to protect you in times of peril. I promise to provide for you from the bounty the Lord has graciously given to us. I promise to wear you proudly as the beautiful crown that you are all the days of my life.

It is the desire of my heart to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. May our marriage bring honor and fame to His name. I pledge my whole self – my spirit, soul, mind and body – to you this day, until we hear the trumpet sound and see King Jesus face to face.

I promise to be your best friend. I promise to walk beside you faithfully in all seasons of life together. I promise to laugh with you in times of rejoicing. I promise to encourage and support you daily. I promise to grieve with you in times of sorrow. I promise to serve alongside you always.

I promise to remind you that the steadfast love of the Lord is better than life. I promise to raise our family lovingly by being a woman undergirded in prayer, anchored in the Word and led by the Spirit. I promise to hold you in the highest esteem, striving always to be clothed in strength and dignity that I may be a godly wife and mother.

May our marriage bring honor and fame to His name. I pledge my whole self – my spirit, soul, mind and body – to you this day, until we hear the trumpet sound and see King Jesus face to face.
