Marriage Amendment Education:


Thank you for all the positive feedback on our Marriage Matters information.  Our Church Family and contacts in the NC community  have asked for more information to defend God's Plan for Marriages and Families.

The information distributed by those who oppose God's plan for Marriage have been dispersing confusing and sometime false  cultural arguments. Do not be overwhelmed by yard signs or reactions from the homosexual community. Recent Polling suggests that a quiet 64 percent majority of NC voters support the Marriage Amendment.

However, we encourage you to examine the issues and the evidence for yourself. We have included several links for you to educate yourself on these important issues of our time. Check it yourself...don't even take my word for it!


We want to encourage all  to vote FOR the Constitutional Amendment to defend our Biblical values, as well as clarify the legal definition of Marriage and Familes. Remember that a "NO" or "ABSTAIN" vote is a vote against the Amendment for Marriage.

Voting our values,

Education Pastor Randall Floyd
