Marriage is a beautiful occasion in which God unites man and woman and we would love to be a part of the process of planning your wedding. The staff here at I am offers several resources to make this day as special and as stress-free as possible, from pre-marital counseling to implementing the rehearsal and ceremony.
“But at the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female’. ’Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So, they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” – Mark 10:6-9
Please contact us to begin planning and scheduling your big day.
The birth of a baby is certainly something to celebrate! Babies are gifts from God that bring joy and laughter into the home. We realize how important it is to dedicate your little one to God and would be pleased to celebrate with you in this joyous occasion. Here at I Am, we believe that dedications should be done for those who are too young to grasp the concept of salvation; to pray over their lives that they might one day receive Christ. Once they have made the decision to accept Christ as their Savior, we would love to celebrate with you by baptizing your child (see Baptism for additional information).
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” – Psalm 139:13-14
Congratulations! Being baptized is a wonderful proclamation that you have accepted Christ as your Savior. We believe in complete submersion in water as it symbolizes putting to death our old ways and being resurrected with a new life in Christ. Please contact us to schedule the momentous occasion.
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” – Romans 6:3-4
Communion is a reminder of what Christ has done for us on the cross. On the first Sunday of every month, we remember Christs’ death and resurrection, that we might have life, by breaking bread together. This symbolism mirrors the Last Supper that Christ had with His disciples before He was crucified. We exercise our faith and acknowledge our dependency on Christ.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.” – 1 Peter 3:18
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” – 2 Corinthians 1:3-5.
The loss of someone you love is an emotional and overwhelming time. Let us help you plan a service to celebrate and remember the life of your loved one. For more information, please contact us.
Life is full of ups and downs; good times and difficult times; times of laughter and times for tears. Here at I Am, we want to walk through life together, no matter the circumstance. We want to be here for you and provide Godly counseling during those trying times in life. Contact us to schedule a counseling session with one of our staff members.
“Bear one another’s burden’s, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
Through marriage, God intended for us to experience a different love: a love that is compared to Christ’s love for his bride, the church. God smiles upon marriage and the union between man and woman. This merger of two lives into one requires effort, and we want to offer guidance and support as you join your lives together as one. Please see one of our staff members to arrange your pre-marital counseling session.
