Our salvation and our worship of God must translate into the way we live out life with other believers in Jesus Christ. We are in the same family, but we are diverse individuals. Created by God to be that way. Yet, we have also been created to be in perfect unity and harmony with one another through the work and...

Abundant Life and Union Gospel Mission (UGM) have been partners for years as we all obey Christ’s command to be kind, compassionate and practically helpful to those in need. UGM’s Development Manager Jeff Gilfillan joins us this Sunday to challenge us not just about supporting UGM in prayer and practical service, but also about our responsibility to serve...

Hebrews 10:23-25: This is the traditional thought: “Good Christians never miss church. If you miss church you are in sin because church is for your growth and learning and you’ll end up suffering.” According to the Bible, when we habitually neglect getting together as believers, the whole body suffers. It’s far more than getting together on Sunday. The...

Acts 11:25-30. As the church grew beyond the borders of Israel, God ignited encouragement in the hearts of the followers of Jesus. They didn't just take care of one another in Antioch, they willingly gave their help and encouragement to those far away who were in need. We are a family in The Church. Every follower of Jesus, every "Christian",...

Don’t think that the great preachers and Bible teachers have the corner on the market when it comes to influence in life and society.You have a talent? You good with your hands? Do you put it to use for the benefit of others because you love Jesus and them? You will rock their world and change their lives....

Acts 6:1-7 We see from the first day of The Church, that Christians served one another, took care of the needy and actively participated in the community. The practical service began to crack under sinful pressure and division. Racism reared its ugly head and the complaints began. The leadership of the church moved everyone forward through unity and wise decisions....

Acts 5:1-11 Ananias and Sapphira chose to lie to the church and ultimately to God (the Holy Spirit). God worked through this incident to cleanse his church and bring about a healthy fear and reverence so the church would not fail in its mission.

Forward in the Community – Acts 2:42-47 This is The Church: A community of believers in Jesus sharing everything with each other, gaining favour from the non-believing community and growing. All needs were met and God was praised. Simple, straight-forward and ready for action!

Birthday of the Church!! The Day of Pentecost, Acts 2. When did THE CHURCH actually begin? The day of Pentecost. Jesus made sure it began with a bang! The Holy Spirit came charging in with a roar and the Church of Jesus began a forward march that even the very gates of Hell and all evil forces cannot withstand.

We highly value balanced leadership. God raises up leaders who give guidance and direction to the church and its ministries. A community needs structure and God has called us to lead and to be followers in His community. But we do things differently with a different goal. Join us as we see what God is doing to create leadership in...

We highly value authentic relationships. Christ established his church as a community of believers who care for and nurture each other in their faith. How will the world know we truly are a community that belongs to Jesus? By the love that we actively show to one another.

Every true believer in Jesus Christ is part of the BIG Community called "The Church". The Church is represented by smaller communities, churches, all over the world. Abundant Life is one of those communities. These Communities of Jesus Christ followers are located in cities, towns, municipalities, also known as "communities". The questions we need to ask ourselves are, do our...

We highly value intentional evangelism and discipleship. The bad news is that because of our sin, we are without hope and without God, separated from him for all eternity. The good news is that Jesus died to pay for our sins and God, in his grace, has given us eternal life with him and hope for today through faith in...

We highly value intentional evangelism and discipleship. God gave us the call to help one another grow in Christian maturity. As followers of Jesus, we are given the call and the resources to take someone from being a complete unbeliever to a full follower of Jesus Christ who continues this great work with others. This is how the community grows.

The Bible is God’s inspired word and our foundation for living in community. Proclaiming God’s word is a means by which we achieve deeper Bible knowledge and should result in transformed lives. Who are the preachers and teachers in the community? All of us! Our community grows together as we teach one another as God teaches us from...

We highly value genuine worship. Worship goes far beyond music. Worship is our lifestyle. We worship God to acknowledge who He is so that we bring honour and glory to His name. Everything we think, say and do is to be an act of worship to God.
