Our desire at Galilee is to have an environment where a biblical community of believers are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, glorify God by loving and serving Him, and by making Him known to the unsaved. We do this through our teaching programs.
First Galilee Missionary Baptist Church considers it an honor to share in your wedding experience. We consider a wedding to be a covenant agreement between a man and a woman confirmed before God and joined into one. First Galilee M.B.C. asks all couples marrying here to seriously consider the central role of God in the marriage relationship and to understand their wedding as a sacred event involving all of the people attending. Premarital counseling is required of all couples that marry here.
