The Bible is completely adequate by itself to serve as the guide for our beliefs and way to living. This paraphrased version of the Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended only to make the official Statement more readily understood. The primary Statement, as it appears in the Constitution of the Assemblies of God, is intended to be the common basis for our fellowship and unity, or as the Bible recommends, that we may live with one another so as to avoid divisions because of disagreement on what we believe (1 Corinthians 1:10 and Acts 2:42).
