Scripture & Marriage

Scripture defines marriage solely in terms of the union of a man and a woman (e.g., Matt.19:4-6; Mark 10:5-9; cf. Gen. 1:27-28, 2:20-24; Eph. 5:21-32). Not only that, Scripture prohibits same-sex intercourse (Rom. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10; cf. Lev. 18:22, 20:13). 


As Christians and Assemblies of God adherents, we affirm that the Bible determines what we believe and how we behave. Our Statement of Fundamental Truths puts it this way: "The Bible is our all-sufficient rule of faith and practice." And: "The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct" (emphasis added).
