What is Abundant Life Like?
To help make your visit to Abundant Life go as smoothly as possible, this is what our Sunday mornings are like:
The Worship Service begins at 10:00 a.m. and typically ends around 11:15. The atmosphere is casual, so feel free to come as you are. We emphasize community here, and you’ll see members of every age demographic. Worship is contemporary, and you’ll hear a message centered on solid, biblical teaching.
Sunday morning adult Equip classes are not presently meeting. They will return as soon as we can offer appropriate social distancing in our classrooms. In the interim, we are providing educational opportunities online. See our Connect, Equip, Engage page for more information.
Our ALC Kids ministers prepare weekly Bible lessons and stories – packaged with fun games – for children through fifth grade. In-person services resume September 20 in our spacious, inviting Kids building on the east end of our campus. Registration is required for ALC Kids services.
Students in grades 6-12 hold TR3S services specifically designed for their age group three times per month in the ALC Students Chapel, located in our activities-filled Students Building on the west end of our campus.
Thank you visiting us online. We’d love to have you visit us in person so we can learn more about each other!
Stories of Abundant Life
We are a church where life transformation occurs. To demonstrate the power of God at work in the lives of our people, we have started a story-telling initiative called "Stories of Abundant Life." A new story will be added each month. We invite you to take a look at the people you could be joining here at our church.
What story would God like to tell through your life?
What We Believe
GOD: There is only one true God, and He is revealed in three persons through what is commonly known as the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST: As God’s son, Jesus came to earth both fully human and fully divine. The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal son of God.
HOLY SPIRIT: Just as in New Testament days, the empowerment of the Holy Spirit enables believers to be witnesses and effective servants.
THE BIBLE: The scriptures were written through the inspiration of God. As truth without error, the Bible declares God’s design and plan for mankind.
SIN: Sin is separation from God. Although man was created in God’s image, man willingly fell to sin, which introduced evil and death – both physical and spiritual – into the world.
SALVATION: In the free gift of salvation, God offers every person the opportunity for restored fellowship with Him through accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin.
BAPTISM: Water baptism by immersion, which occurs after a person has repented of his sins and received the gift of salvation, is a symbolic declaration that a believer has died with Christ and has been raised from that death to live a new life in Christ.
CHURCH: The church – both locally and globally – is a community of fellow believers that exists to equip the saints for works of service and to share the gospel message with every nation, tribe, people and language.
We exist to equip the generations in order to engage the culture with the Gospel.
Our Core Values
Everybody needs a friend. Everybody needs to grow. Everybody needs a purpose.
From these three truths, we derive Abundant Life's three core values: Connect, Equip and Engage.
We build community through Connect Groups – small groups formed primarily based on seasons of life and common interests. We also hold a Digital Prayer Meeting every Tuesday via Zoom that anyone in our church can join to pray for needs within and outside of our church community.
We grow through Equip Classes that provide engaging, biblical teaching. The Fall semester includes Sunday morning classes, weekday Bible studies for women and our first Equip U. four-week offering titled "God and Science." Our Equip Podcast is an extension of our teaching, focusing on the points of our lives where theology and culture intersect. We also are building content of book-by-book teachings by Pastor Jason on our Bible Studies page, where you can find studies of ongoing studies of Philippians and Revelation.
We live out our purpose through opportunities to Engage the culture around the corner – through ministry in the neighborhoods of Grapevine – and around the world – through mission trips and generous support of missionaries and missions projects.
