What We Do Here

Building the Church through Building the Family

Many Christians today are rediscovering the truth that nowhere in the Bible is plural marriage expressly prohibited or condemned. Realizing that the case for the prohibition and criminalization of polygamy is based on faulty reasoning and hermeneutics can be disconcerting and disorienting, as so much of Western culture is dependent on the assumption that legally-enforced monogamy is grounded in Christian ethics.

Biblical Families exists to support, defend, encourage, and strengthen Christians who are seeking to "be transformed by the renewing of their minds" in the area of what the scriptures teach about marriage and family. We provide online resources for education and support, we have a discussion forum here on our website that has members from around the globe, and we host regular retreats and get-togethers around the United States to encourage real 'meatspace' fellowship for like-minded families.

If you can't find what you're looking for, or have suggestions for our site, please contact us using the Quick Contact form below. We look forward to hearing from you!

Coming soon – resources for families and friends trying to understand your family choices.

“I confess that I cannot forbid a person to marry several wives, for it does not contradict the Scripture. If a man wishes to marry more than one wife he should be asked whether he is satisfied in his conscience that he may do so in accordance with the word of God. In such a case the civil authority has nothing to do in the matter.”

Martin Luther

Christian Plural Marriage Is:


Nowhere in the Bible is polygamy condemned or criticized, let alone criminalized. Take a look at our articles and links and then ask yourself, "If the institutional church has been wrong about this for 500 years, what else might they be wrong about?"


Bigamy is still a crime in all 50 states. However, the secular government has no business trying to define and regulate marriage in the first place (and we're working on that!), and meanwhile creative, responsible, Christian adults can still live in plural marriage without breaking the law.


Plural marriage offers many practical benefits to women and men alike, creating the opportunity to build a strong, diverse family with lots of love and a solid financial foundation, and it is never, ever boring! Check out our articles or come to the discussion forum and ask questions!
