What We Believe

The Scriptures are the inspired, infallible, revealed Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12)

The one true God is a Triune Being, The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29)

Man, his fall and his redemption- Man, who is triune, has a spirit, soul and body, was created good, upright and in the image of God. Man voluntarily transgressed and fell. Redemption for man is found only in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed blood to redeem and restore man back to proper relationship with God. We believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and by confessing with the mouth “Jesus is Lord” will result in man’s salvation. (Romans 3:24; 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8; 1 John 3:8)

Water baptism- Baptism in water by immersion is a commandment of our Lord. Water baptism symbolizes to the world that one has died with Jesus and has been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48)

The Lord’s Supper- This ordinance of the Church symbolizes the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ which establishes the New Covenant between God and man.

Baptism of The Holy Ghost- The baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by Jesus Christ. The initial physical sign of speaking in tongues accompanies the experience of receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost as the Spirit gives utterance. It gives us spiritual power for public testimony and service after the new birth in Jesus Christ. ( Acts 2:4; Acts 1:8; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 2:38)

The Church– The Home of God is the body of Christ. Each believer, born of God’s Spirit, is an intregral art of the general assembly and the church of the First Born, which is written in heaven. We believe that Christ gave to the Church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. (Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22: 4:11-13).

Total prosperity- Spiritual (John 3:3,11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21); Mental (2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2); Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17) Financial ( 3 John 1:2; Malachi 3:10-11) Social (Proverbs 3:4)

Divine Healing- Healing is for the physical body and is brought by God’s power through the prayer of faith and laying on of hands. It is the privilege of every member of the body of Christ. We believe that healing is just as available today as it was in Biblical times.

The Blessed Hope- “Awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the great God and Savior Jesus Christ…”. “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with Him.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:13)

The Lake of Fire- when someone dies without accepting Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, he is eternally lost in the Lake of Fire with no opportunity of repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15)

Marriage - We believe that marriage is constituted of one man and one woman only. We do not recognize any other relational unions other than one man and one woman only, including but not limited to same-sex unions and/or relationships.

The church facilities will not be used in contrast to this belief by any person or entity. No minister of Abundant Life is permitted to participate in any way with the officiating, conducting, arranging or assisting in any way with a marriage union that is in contrast to our beliefs.
