Our book,  Sovereign Christian Marriage (OFFSITE LINK), advocates getting married without a state marriage license.  Even so, you still need a a pastor to officiate the ceremony.  Some of our readers have written to say that they have had trouble finding pastors who would marry them without a marriage license. Consequently, we have started up a registry of Pastors who will do this.  The list of pastors below have told us that they are willing to officiate marriages without the need for a marriage license.  However, both persons who are getting married must be Christians, because 2 Corinthians 6:14 says that believers should not marry unbelievers:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
[Bible, 2 Cor. 6:14, KJV]

Likewise, unless at least one of the parties are Christians, the marriage is doomed to failure:

"Unless the Lord builds the house [or the family], they labor in vain who build it [with the state or a marriage license]."
[Psalm 127:1, NKJV]

Pastors who will marry without a marriage license are common.  All you have to do is open up your local phone book and call the numbers in the churches section.  Sooner or later you will find a man of God who hasn't sold his soul to Satan by applying for a 501(c ) corporate status with the IRS and who believes that there ought to be a separation between church as state and marriage and state.

So here are the courageous pastors who will marry two Christians without licenses:

NOTE:  If you are a pastor and would like to be added to this list, then please send us your information so we can post it.  If you are a person who found a pastor locally who would marry you without a marriage license, please send us the contact information for the pastor so we can post it.
