Abundant Life
Our mission here at Abundant Life is to inspire people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ by following His example in Love and Grace. We aim to build a community where we can grow and inspire hope into each other daily through prayer, sound teaching, diverse small groups and active discipleship.

Service Times:

Sunday Morning: 10:00 am every Sunday

We will have dynamic worship, following which, we will break up into age appropriate groups where we can talk and share about relevant issues that we all face every day. This is a time that we can minister and be ministered to in a way that is specific to the age demographic.
Sunday Afternoon: 12:00 pm Growth Tracks - Our Growth Tracks are separated into 4 weeks
Growth Track 1: The First Sunday of every month
Connect: In this growth track we aim to give you information about our church so that you can make a decision whether or not you want to be a part. After Growth Track 1, our hope is to help you find a place that you can connect and feel at home here at Abundant Life so that you can feel confident in saying "this is MY church!"
​Growth Track 2: The Second Sunday of every month
Purpose: In this Growth Track we aim to help you find your purpose. There are two great moments in everyone's life; the moment you are born, and the moment you discover why you were born. In discovering your purpose you can move from sitting on the bench to playing for the team. You can be an active member of Abundant Life and join our Dream Team (Our Extraordinary Group of Volunteers). This is the goal: for us to help you discover who you are in Christ and why He put you on this planet.
​Growth Track 3: The Third Sunday of every month
Leadership: In this Growth Track, we will teach you our leadership style at Abundant Life. We will teach you how to fit into the ministry plan that we have established and we will share with you all of the expectations we have for our leadership teams. Our goal is that you will discover the leader inside of you and you will blossom into the man or woman of God that you were always meant to be.  
Growth Track 4: The Fourth Sunday of every month
Pick A Team: In this Growth Track we will outline every ministry in our church and we will let you choose the team that on which you would like to serve. If you would like to start a Family Circle, we will get you started. If you would like to join an existing ministry team, we will set you up with a mentor so that you can work with them and begin to serve in the ministry that best complements your giftings. Once a person truly finds out their purpose and giftings and then is released to work in them freely, God begins to move.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:00 - 8:00 am the church will be open for prayer.

OUR HISTORY & FUTURE

Coming Soon
Top
What We Believe
​​Holy Bible
The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26

Trinity
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal
1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father and will return again in power and glory.
John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; 1 Timothy 2:5

Virgin Birth
Jesus Christ was born in the virgin Mary's womb; conceived by God the Father through the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Trinity. Therefore, Jesus is the Son of God.
Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35

Redemption
Man was created good and upright but by voluntary transgression he fell. Because of this, man's only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 
​Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21

Regeneration
For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5

Salvation
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.
Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22

Repentance
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sin and appropriate salvation.
Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9

Sanctification
Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thesalonians 2:1-3; Romans 8:29,12:1-2; Hebrews 2:11

Jesus' Blood
The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe, to be free from the penalty of sin; which is death.
1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29

Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers
Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried and rose again from the dead.
John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20

Baptism In The Holy Spirit
Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His ascension to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth.
Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6

The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible's list of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters.
Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10

The Church
The Church is the Body of Christ and the habitation of God through the Spirit. The Church has divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of the believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23

Sacraments
Water Baptism
Following Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:28; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38, 10:47-48

The Lord's Supper
A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice; symbols of the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, are taken in rememberance of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.
Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25

Marriage
We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a convenant; a sacred bond between one man and one woman instituted by and publicly entered into before God.
Matthew 19:4-6

Healing Of The Sick
Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit.
Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16

God's Will For Provision
It is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. Because of the fall many may not receive the full benefits of God's will while on earth; but that fact should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ's provision in order to better serve others.
Spiritual Provision
John 3:3-11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10
Mental and Emotional Provision
2 Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3
Physical Provision
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24
Financial Provisioin
Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:28; 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Phillippians 4:19

Resurrection
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of eternal life and those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation
Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44; Phillippians 1:21-23, 3:21

Heaven
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4

Hell
After living one life on earth the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the devil and the fallen angels
Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8
