(P) Divorce and Remarriage

We believe that God hates divorce and intends marriage to last until one of the spouses dies. Although divorced and remarried persons or divorced persons may hold positions of service in the Church and be greatly used of God for Christian service, they may not be considered for the offices of Pastor or deacon (Malachi 2:14-17; Matthew 19:3-12; Romans 7:1-33; I Timothy 3:2, 12; Titus 1:6).
