COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATIONS

OUR HEART FOR MISSIONS

At Abundant, we place value on all humanity, working within our local community as well as partnering with international organisations to take care of some of the world's most vulnerable and at risk.

We are commited to advocating and praying for communities, and through providing practical care and support, we open the door to the loving message of Jesus.

HOW DOES YOUR FAITH PROMISE WORK?

A faith promise is a commitment to financially support the missions program of Abundant Life Church and should represent what you feel the Lord desires to 'give through you' in the next 12 months. This could be a once off gift or regular instalments. This promise should be made after prayerful consideration and be an extension of faith.

WHY DO WE GIVE?

Because Jesus asked us to take his message of love, in both word and deed, to the whole world.

Be we too were once lost and in need of Good News and help.

Because we've had the privilege of hearing the Good News of Jesus while others never have.

OUR FOCUS AREAS

We believe we are to both give and go to the nations and neighbourhoods of the world.

Our focus areas for 2019/20 are:

COMMUNITY, GENERATIONS, JUSTICE & ADVOCACY.
