Does anyone knows what are the requirements to get married in a Christian church?

It may vary from church to church, but normally you have to be a member of the congregation and be considered in good standing and neither person could have been married previously in the church. Those are the only two that I know of off hand. If you are interested in getting married in a Christan church, you shoul dspeak to the minister of the church. There may be other requirements - like couples counseling and a waiting period - before you can get married.

It really depends upon the church. Most require that you or your fiance have been a member of that specific church for at least a year. Some will require that you are both Christian. Most will also require that you go through marriage conseling sessions. Others have little requirements that they'll have on a flyer or something for you to go through. Call the church or churches you are interested in and ask them about these requirements. It doesn't hurt to ask.

not all but some require you to be of that sect and a member of that church but it is possible without that but to be stated a christian by one would be a requirement for sure
