The fundamental teachings of Abundant Life are reflected in the following doctrinal statements:

  • We believe that all Scripture is given by inspiration of God. We understand the whole Bible is inspired in the sense that holy men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very Word of Scripture. We believe the complete inerrancy of the original manuscripts of the whole Bible and that they serve as the only rule of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16; Pet. 1:21)  

  • We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible. (Matt. 28:19)  

  • We believe in the creation, test, and fall of man, as recorded in the book of Genesis, his total depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness. (Romans 5:12,18)

  • We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man. (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14. 9:6)

  • We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples. (1 Cor. 15:1-4; Romans 4:25)

  • We believe in the bodily Ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation, and personal, literal, and bodily return the second time for the church. (John 14:2-3; 1 Thess. 4:13-18)

  • We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith, in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary, by which we obtain remission of sins. (Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 9:12; Rom. 5:11)

  • We believe in the necessity of water Baptism by immersion, in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ. (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:36-39; 19:1-6)  

  • We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as an experience subsequent to salvation; with the scriptural evidence, namely, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:1-4, 8:14-17, 10:44-46; Gal. 3:14-15)
     
  • We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1. Cor. 12-14, as manifested in the early church.
     
  • We believe in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world, and perfecting holiness in the fear of God, as an expression of Christian faith. (Eph. 5:18; 2 Cor. 6:14;7:1)
     
  • We believe in the healing of the body by Divine power or Divine healing, in its varied aspects, as practiced in the early church. (Acts 4:30; Rpm. 8:11; 1 Cor. 12:9; James 5:14)
     
  • We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lords Supper, for believers. (1 Cor. 11:28-32)
     
  • We believe in the eternal life for believers (John 3:16; 5:24) and eternal punishment for unbelievers. (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thess. 1:9; Rev. 20;10-15)
     
  • We believe in the reality and personality of Satan and the eternal judgement of Satan and his angels. (Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10-15
