One thing we ask of engaged couples in the Preparing for Marriage ministry at The Summit Church is to sign a Purity Covenant (Purity Covenant). This covenant is presented and discussed as part of the mentoring relationship we arrange for engaged couples.
Knowing this can be an awkward conversation (what conversation about sex isn’t?), we created this brief video to offer a model of the content and tone which leads into this conversation.
Additional information about the sociological and Scriptural reasons for abstaining from sex until marriage can be found in this discussion of cohabitation.
Our goal with each of these resources is to invite young couples into an important conversation; not to “win an argument.” We are for your marriage and believe that following God’s design is essential to enjoying the kind of life you’re envisioning when you say, “I do.”
