I have heard this question asked many times. In my opinion it does matter. It talks in the bible about being unequally yoked. My dad was catholic and my mom was pentecostal at the time they got married. Then when I came along the question was how dow we raise her. Your beliefs are something to be shared in a marriage. What church do you go to when you both believe something different? If you don't take what you believe in seriously as a way of life then I don't think it matters if your beliefs are different. For me it is huge. I won't marry someone who doesn't believe the same as me because we would differ in many decisions. If this is something you are dealing with personally then I suggest you really pray about it. It's the rest of your life.
