The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has released another memo which detailed requirements intending couples must meet before their wedding ceremony can be officiated by the Church.
According to its latest memo circulating online, keeping beards by grooms is not allowed.
Also, the gown to be worn by the bride and the outfit the bride’s maids will wear must be inspected to ensure they conform to the standard required by the Church.
See the memo below.
It was reported few days ago that intending couples of RCCG are now to submit for genital testing before they can be allowed to proceed to marriage.
Though the kind of genital testing is yet to be made clear, it is revealed that it will help prevent marital crisis due to falsehood about reproductive/genital status.
The document labelled “memo,” from Assistant General Overseer (Admin & Personnnel), with reference: RCCG/PERS/IFO/AD/MENO/10/05/2018, has as subject: Directive on pre-marital examination.
“Calvary greetings in Jesus’ name.
“The Mission Authority has observed the recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital status.
“We have the directive of the General Overseer to instruct the entire Mission’s outpost that forthwith, pre-marital medical examination for intending couples should also include genital test.
“Further, Provinces are requested to register with particular (trusted) government approved hospital for the various pre-marital examinations for intending couples.
“Remain blessed in this season of songs and victory in Jesus’ name, amen.
