ABUNDANT LIFE FELLOWSHIP

ARE YOU READY FOR A ROAD TRIP? WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO TAKE THIS JOURNEY WITH US!


WE ARE TRULY EXCITED THAT YOU ARE HERE, HANGING OUT WITH US ON THIS SITE.  AS A CHURCH WE ALWAYS WANT TO BE LEADING PEOPLE INTO THEIR NEXT STEP TOWARDS A DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD…THAT’S WHERE WE ARE GOING! WE WANT TO KNOW HIM MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY AND TO BECOME MORE AND MORE LIKE JESUS EVERY DAY. THAT IS THE ROAD TRIP THAT WE ARE ON TOGETHER. HERE IS OUR FAMILY MOTTO AS WELL AS OUR STATEMENT OF IDENTITY AND VISION FOR OUR CHURCH.
 FOLLOWING JESUS TOGETHER
EVERYDAY, EVERYWHERE
BECAUSE HE LOVES US.

 

WE WORSHIP GOD IN EVERYTHING WE DO AND SAY, LOVING HIM WITH ALL OF OUR HEART, SOUL, MIND AND STRENGTH.  OUR WORSHIP IS MORE THAN SINGING SONGS AND LIFTING OUR HANDS, IT IS PUTTING OUR “HEART AND SOUL” INTO ALL THAT WE DO…AS UNTO THE LORD. WE GIVE BACK TO HIM THE GIFTS HE GAVE US; ART, CREATIVITY, COMMUNICATION, ADMINISTRATION, CRITICAL THINKING, PHYSICAL LABOR AND MUCH MORE.  THROUGH THE AVENUE OF OUR GIFTINGS AND ACTIVITIES WE PRAY, LEARN, SERVE AND TELL OTHERS ABOUT JESUS AND THE AMAZING STORY OF GOD’S GRACE. THIS IS WORSHIP TO HIM.

 

WE KEEP OUR EYES ON JESUS. YES, WE WILL ALWAYS EXPLORE THE DEPTH AND INTRICACIES SCRIPTURE AND STRIVE TO KNOW GOD IN GREATER WAYS OF DOCTRINE, UNDERSTANDING, SPIRITUAL GIFTS, MOVING OF HOLY SPIRIT, ETC., BUT WE WILL NEVER LEAVE BEHIND THE SIMPLE MESSAGE OF JESUS, THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD WHO DIED AND ROSE AGAIN SO THAT WE CAN KNOW GOD AS HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS (WHICH IS OUR ORIGINAL DESIGN). JESUS’ EXAMPLE IS THE FOCUS OF ALL OF OUR ESTABLISHMENTS. NONE OF OUR ADMINISTRATING OR ORGANIZATION CAN EVER TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER FOLLOWING CHRIST’S EXAMPLE.

 

WE LIVE OUT ABUNDANT LIFE TOGETHER. WE ARE MARKED BY GOD’S LOVE WHICH IS EVIDENT WHENEVER WE ARE TOGETHER. WE ARE A CHURCH OF COMPASSION AND FORGIVENESS ONE FOR ANOTHER. WE HAVE DIFFERENCES IN PERSONALITY AND NON-ESSENTIAL BELIEFS, BUT UNITY IN JESUS AND IN HIS VISION FOR OUR CHURCH AND WORLD, EACH OF US DOING OUR PART WITH RESPECT FOR THE GIFTINGS, CALLINGS AND MINISTRY OF OTHERS.

 

WE ARE A 24/7 KIND OF CHURCH, COMPLETELY BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS OF SUNDAY MORNING. WE FIRMLY RECOGNIZE THAT WE ARE ALWAYS CHRIST’S FAMILY AND MUST BE ABOUT HIS KINGDOM ALL THE TIME. OUR VISION IS TO HAVE OUR BUILDING OPEN EVERYDAY, ALL DAY FOR PRAYER WITH LIVE WORSHIP, TO HAVE MULTIPLE LIFE GROUPS HAPPENING EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK ALL OVER OUR COMMUNITY AND TO HAVE NEW MINISTRIES CONTINUALLY RISE UP THROUGH OUR PEOPLE. WE ARE A FORWARD MOVING CHURCH.

 

WE ARE A PORTAL TO THE NATIONS. OUR VISION IS THE WORLD; OUR MISSION IS WHEREVER WE ARE. WE CAN AND WILL IMPACT THE ENTIRE WORLD, STARTING WITH THE ILLINOIS VALLEY AS WE ESTABLISH AND SUPPORT MINISTRIES WHICH FOCUS ON SERVING THE HELPLESS AND SPREADING THE GOSPEL, SPECIFICALLY IN THOSE AREAS THAT ARE CURRENTLY UNEVANGELIZED. WE ARE A TWO WAY PORTAL, SENDING OUT PRAYERS, PEOPLE AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND BRINGING IN TESTIMONIES, PRAYER NEEDS AND REFUGE FOR THOSE DOING THE WORK.

 

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF A GOD WHO LOVES US. WE CARRY THIS MESSAGE IN OUR HEARTS: GOD SENT JESUS INTO THIS WORLD BECAUSE HE LOVES US! OUR ORIGINAL DESIGN WAS ROYALTY, GOD’S KIDS! BUT WE CHOSE TO REJECT HIM. WE CHOSE TO BE OUR OWN GOD AND TO DO OUR OWN THING APART FROM HIM.  A BRANCH THAT SEPARATES ITSELF FROM IT’S TREE WILL DIE, IN THE SAME WAY WE SEPARATED OURSELVES FROM OUR GOD…AND WE DIED.  BUT THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT BECAUSE OF JESUS DEATH AND RESURECTION WE CAN BE GRAFTED BACK IN TO THE TREE. WE CAN LAY OUR OLD LIFE ON THE CROSS TO DIE WITH HIM AND WE CAN BE RESURECTED, BORN AGAIN INTO OUR ORIGINAL DESIGN; ROYALTY, THE CHILDREN OF GOD!
