The Key is the Struggle
Marriage is between one man and one woman. We also acknowledge that we live in a fallen world of sin that can entrap any of us. While many talk about the “normal sins” and “normal addictions”, we often push away those with same-sex attraction feelings because we are not equipped with God’s Word and compassion to help those in this struggle. The victory is to Be Complete in Christ and not be held captive by any sin.

- Our Statement -
Table for One Ministries’ mission is to build community for single adults through discipleship. Our ministry focuses on ministering to singles and helping them fully realize their completeness in Christ. Yet we also affirm the importance of marriage and believe that being complete in Christ is not just for singles but also for marriages. Additionally, while we desire to help churches reach and minister to the ever-growing single population, we want to acknowledge the importance of marriage in God’s redemptive plan for this world.
We affirm that God establishes biblical marriage as a life-long covenant between one man and one woman. Marriage is intended to be the perfect example of Christ’s relationship with his church and a living example of the gospel of forgiveness, grace, and mercy. The marriage relationship provides the only acceptable channel for physical intimacy between a man and woman. Additionally, marriage is God’s plan for the procreation of mankind and is vital to fulfilling His will for mankind and his kingdom.
We believe in the institution of marriage, and yet we recognize that many Christians are single for numerous reasons. Our goal is to help singles continue growing and desire a deep and intimate relationship with Christ now, regardless of their marital or relational status.
