The Madison Baptist Association is committed to the Biblical truth that marriage is a union between one man and one woman, following Biblical principles (Gen. 2:18-25; Lev. 18:22; Matt. 19:3-6; Rom. 1:24-28; I Cor. 6:9-11; 7:1-5; Eph. 5:22-6:4; I Tim. 1:8-11). God sanctions only the union in marriage of a man to a woman. Our Southern Baptist statement of faith, The Baptist Faith & Message, declares that "marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime." Thus, we are deeply saddened that, as of February 9, 2015, homosexual couples have been permitted to marry in Huntsville and the state of Alabama. The Madison Baptist Association in no way endorses this decision or its resulting actions.
