Organizational Statement on Same Sex Marriage



The Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc. goes on record applauding the leadership of President Barack Obama with his many achievements in improving   the quality of life for all Americans; however we are in conflict with the President's personal stance on the issue of same sex marriage. As Christian ministers we reaffirm our commitment to God and confidence in the Holy Bible which we deem as His infallible Word. We go on record as believing that marriage is a most sacred union ordained of God between one man and one woman.


We shall continue as Jesus did to love and welcome all individuals into our churches. Yet we are called to preach against every variation of sin as described in the bible in hope that all people may be transformed into the knowledge of Jesus Christ.


The Word of God also encourages us to pray for those in leadership positions and with this mandate we shall continue to lift up our President as he shoulders the awesome responsibility of leading the free world.
